- Rémy M. Larochelle brings us one of the most original takes on a post-apocalyptic world in this fantastic stop-motion animation movie.
Imagine if Jan Svankmajer, Shinya Tsukamoto and David Lynch met up and started working on a stop-motion movie together. If you still don't understand; you can pause the film at any second, and the picture that's frozen on the screen could just as well be a painting by itself, that's how stunning every second of the film is.

Mecanix is a disconcerting movie. An experimental piece that reminds the animation of the Brothers Quay, and a mix of the old school from Georges Melies, Jan Svankmajer to Eraserhead.
- This fairytale, with characters as scary as your worst nightmare, is set in an unknown world. Mecanix tells the story of where the last humain beings are forced to be the slaves of the strange creatures that rule this strange world. There is only one thing these beasts fear - the embryo of the universe : the origin of everything. The only hope that the humans have is to free themselves from this mecanic environment before they all die. The embryo that the beasts fear is hidden in the last freeborn man. The scientist helping the beasts must vivisect every human of the planet to stop this embryo from growing, and destroy it forever.
