Product description

Product Description

Sci-fi romance directed by Michael Winterbottom. In a Brave New World-style dystopian near future, family man William (Tim Robbins) is a government investigator sent to get to the bottom of a counterfeiting ring which is producing fake 'papelles' - the compulsory travel permits issued to the elite by the totalitarian government. Through his investigations he meets a mysterious young woman, Maria (Samantha Morton), with whom he falls passionately in love - despite the fact that he knows she is behind the forgeries. When William takes actions to cover up her crime, he finds himself becoming increasingly embroiled in the political controversy surrounding the case.

From Amazon.co.uk

Like Gattacadid before it, Code 46 extrapolates from the present to posit a chilling, dystopian look at our genetically regimented future. In the corporate-controlled, near-future scenario presented by prolific director Michael Winterbottom and his regular screenwriter Frank Cottrell Boyce, nations and languages have merged to form a polyglot society in which genetic imperfections are avoided by the strict enforcement of Code 46, which prohibits sex between people who share 100%, 50%, or even 25% matching DNA. As an insurance-fraud investigator in Shanghai to investigate the issuance of forged passports (a major offense in an overcrowded world), Tim Robbins meets his prime suspect (Samantha Morton, echoing her role in Minority Report), and their violation of Code 46 has tragic and ultimately dehumanizing repercussions. Fascinating as a "what-if" scenario, Winterbottom's film is more successful as a melancholy mood-piece than a science-fiction tale. While the plot and characters suffer from occasionally vague definition, Code 46 offers a fascinating study of human longing in an age of oppressive globalization. --Jeff Shannon --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
