Terry Gilliam’s latest film announces a slightly unusual cast: Christoph Waltz, Matt Damon, Mélanie Thierry and…the Renault Twizy.
‘The Zero Theorem’ is the story of an eccentric and lonely IT genius (played by a bald Waltz), who lives in a chapel, suffering from existential neurosis, and looking for the meaning of life… The story takes place in London, where Terry Gilliam takes us into a dark and baroque future, where Twizy has invaded the streets of the city. In the film, the world is a shown as a vibrant and happy place full of electric Twizys but with one dark element; the lead character.
The Twizy’s are joined by other feature cars from the early days of motoring, the 20’s and 30’s to set a futuristic yet current and believable future London.
The Zero Theorem, on screens from 14 March 2014.
