Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this mature motion-capture animated film features dark, typically film-noirish themes: identity theft, DNA manipulation, murder, kidnapping, betrayal, and depression. There's lots of violence, rendered in harshly black-and-white, high-contrast animation (guns, knives, car chases/collisions, an explicitly and upsettingly dead dog). The first violent scene involves a young kidnap victim, who endures shooting all around him before being saved. The plot involves genetic research on humans, including photos of sad-looking subjects. A sexual encounter is implied by kissing; it's followed by a scene in which the couple smoke cigarettes. A gangster appears in a pool with naked women (breasts are visible). Characters smoke cigarettes, drink liquor, and use foul language. Under the CCPA law you have the right to protect your personal information. Make a Do Not Sell request to Renaissance.

Is It Any Good?
Sharp-angled and dark-themed, this French film combines science fiction, film noir, and motion-capture animation. It features all of the usual noir elements -- a stoic hero, a tangled plot, and deep shadows, both literal and figurative. But be warned: While the film is intelligent and intriguing, it's also, on occasion, slow-moving and grim.
