spacetime coordinates: Europe, 2024
Metropia is a 2009 English-language Swedish-Danish-Norwegian adult animated mystery thriller drama science fiction film directed by Tarik Saleh. The visual style is inspired by the works of Terry Gilliam, Roy Andersson and Yuriy Norshteyn.
In the near future, oil reserves are nearly depleted and Europe is connected by series of underground tunnels. While navigating these tunnels, Roger (Vincent Gallo), from a suburb of Stockholm, hears voices, one in particular. Seeking a way to rid himself of the voice only leads Roger deeper into a bizarre conspiracy of control – mind and body.
