The Congress

Drama, Science Fiction, Animation 2h 2m 2013

AroView: Robin Wright stars as an aging actress who is offered the chance of “career immortality” by being digitized in this topical and state-of-the-art show biz fantasy.

Another innovative feature from the director of animated documentary WALTZ WITH BASHIR, this unique hybrid of live action and animated feature is beautifully controlled in its live action opening half before segueing into a surrealistic cartoon nightmare. While less satisfying in its computer rendered pay-off that its ‘real life’ set-up this perhaps underscores the point the film is trying to make.

“Wholly original and thoroughly surprising fusion of sensory overload and liberal philosophy bound to confuse and provoke in equal measures.” ~ Eric Kohn, INDIEWIRE
