Eden Log (2007)
Directed By: Franck Vestiel
Written By: Franck Vestiel and Pierre Bordage
This French film, this very long feeling French film is basically about a world where all their energy is supplied by a enormous tree. The Eden Log is a secret underground science facility for studying the exposed tree roots. The studies that the scientists are conducting include injecting people with sap from the tree which gives them a symbiotic relationship with plants, and plants with humans. Eventually the sap turns people into man killing mutants that are then placed in boxes and hung from the tree canopy.
The part that bothered me the most is that the main character wakes up and can’t remember anything, in freezing cold mud, surrounded by dead bodies and when he does come into contact with a person he does nothing. He does no ask for a name, location, who are the freaks chasing me, any weapons, what’s going on, seriously what’s going on. This is a movie you either love or you hate there is no middle. I found the camera angles dizzying and annoying, Seriously what the hell is this film really about!
