The review ‘Kimi – Someone listening’ at the Noir Film Festival
How many of you speak daily with the warm voice of Siri, for some the only company present for days, a true friend who solves problems? Here on this “Siri” obsession which, (in the film, becomes ‘Kimi’), that is, dependence on robotics, the director builds his idea which, if enriched and aggravated by a pandemic where forced closure, makes everyone more autistic and alone, it clearly flows and gets the interest of the onlookers.
Always original Soderbergh, he knows how to fly a moment further than expected and before the others. She had done it with ‘Contagion’ where years in advance, about 10, she had predicted and filmed the bat pandemic. Now with the good Kravitz manages to make credible the disadvantage that computers take on us and, with them, those who sell them. Willing to do anything for the money. Here you exploit the relationship between man and technology which, like a fork, expands more and more and strikes the interest of sociologists and psychologists, who must try to curb addictions even on the very young
