France | 2015 | 105 minutes | Philippe Fernandez

A slyly funny mix of "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" and 2001: A Space Odyssey, this retro-futuristic sci-fi story begins when seven astronauts - including Sigmund Freud look-alike, an overly communicative chimp, and a friendly dog - wake up on a spaceship, not knowing where they have come from nor where they are heading. As the ship operates by itself, they have ample time to meditate on matter, life and the universe.
