Nomination Year: 2004
SYNOPSIS: If you ever get a chance to watch a poorly-dubbed Danish cyberpunk movie...don't. In the future, Denmark will be a cyberpunk hellhole. Or maybe a cyberpunk utopia. It's kinda hard to tell. Either way, it's run by Stoice, the inventor of cyberspace, and his six super programmers, known as the webmasters. Now someone is killing the webmasters and siphoning money out of Stoice's account. Stoice assigns webmaster J.B. to solve the mystery. To provide added incentive, J.B. is outfitted with an artificial heart that will stop working in 36 hours if he doesn't complete his mission (and you thought your company's motivational program sucked!). Mostly, the mission seems to consist of J.B. wandering through conduits. Meanwhile, J.B.'s beautiful detective partner gets involved in some incomprehensible subplot with a couple of blue-haired laid-off TV anchors. In the end, J.B. catches the killer, tells Stoice to take this job and shove it, and runs off with his partner to lie on the grass in a disused soccer stadium. I dunno, maybe it makes more sense in Danish.
I Don't Know, Maybe It's Less clear in Danish.
