Metropia is a Swedish film made by Tarik Saleh and a film very spoken about, wherefore we decided to see it.

Purely aesthetically it's an interesting film, influenced by Metropolis (Fritz Lang), Blade Runner (Ridley Scott), Subway (Luc Besson) and many more.
I'm however not impressed by the screenplay.
It starts of well and the plot could have developed into a veritable dystopic saga à la 1984 (George Orwell) or Kallocain (Karin Boye) but it more becomes a rather 'sweet' and (to) polished story about the Surveillance Society.

This was also Saleh's debut as a feature film director, earlier having done documentaries and I think it's a very promising debut but next time I would like to see a more surprising and original (hi)story.
