Animation continues to be the artistic field with the greatest capacity for generating surprises like the enormously pleasant one provided by Metropia with its innovative animated photo montage. Its story starts in a near future where a big company, Trexx, has chosen to merge all of Europe’s subways to alleviate the old continent’s crisis. Roger, who hears voices in his head every time he enters the subway, finds himself wrapped up in a Kafkaesque conspiracy when the actress from his favorite shampoo walks by him. Vincent Gallo and Juliette Lewis, among others, put their voice to this funny, biting Orwellian paranoia.
