*THIS* is how you make an AI film.
Verified purchase
What an immaculate tale. AI, love and quality science woven into an intriguing and original story.

Live actors first: Foremost was Claudia Vega. Such depth for such an young actress, she was perfect in the part. Daniel Brühl, Marta Etura and Alberto Ammann round out the adults. All fine actors and great in their parts.

Now the icing: The CGI was astounding, and consider that this was a decade ago. They wisely (and I've not seen it elsewhere) chose to create an entirely new "programming language", the presentation of which told you right off the bat that, despite the apparent current time settings, this story takes place after a number huge technological leaps.
After that, all the robotics and 'programming' is treated as a normal work-a-day helpers and tool sets.

The love story embedded (or vis-a-versa) in the scifi tale was appropriate and a good thread in its own right.

Every technical aspect was top notch.

Do watch this and enjoy what I consider to the be best robot/AI story written and filmed.

A nice simple dramatic film well plotted and acted
Verified purchase
First off don't trust the trailers on this one. it is NOT a suspense film or a horror film. This is a drama about a robotics expert who is invited back to his hometown to design a robotic child. It takes place in the "near future" where robots have been designed in various roles to assist people. It's a story about the relationships between the characters and the plot is even a little predictable but it is still a nice journey mostly because of the acting. It's a simple drama you will enjoy to watch one evening. I growled at the ending because I disagreed with it (but can't reveal why without giving out a spoiler). It is in Spanish. If the subtitles don't appear, adjust your prime setting option to turn on English subtitles or CC. They will pop up.

Had Potential
Verified purchase
This movie had the potential to be really great especially with the idea that the concept of a free robot. The cinematography was great and the scenery was amazing. The young actor that played Eva did an amazing job. The robots seem real and did not give off any hint of CGI. However, there is no mystery to the movie and the last 20 minutes seems like it was a rush to complete the story. I figured out that Eva was a robot when she first arrived on screen. She was the only child wearing bright colors. Dead give away.

Why all of the melodrama between two brothers? David and Alex. David seems very confident in his love for Lana, his partner but immediately got jealous when Lana was dancing with his brother. It just came up while all through the movie there was no hint of it. Also, why would Lana have such a romantic waltz with Alex in front of David? I believe that was lazy writing. the last 20 minutes was a rushed, which include the cold-hearted partner and brother, the jealous partner, the fight between brothers, the kiss between David and Lana, Eva finding out she is a robot, Lana falling off a cliff, and eventually dying. Why David and Lana are not married after being together for so long is beyond me. I guess the writer thought it would be easier for the audience to swallow the love between Lana and Alex if she was not married. It did not work. Also, why every motive or tv series that include Marta Etura (Lana) always have to show her in her underwear. We get it, she has a good nice body but that was so unnecessary in this movie. Here is a better plot: David passed away and David returned for the funeral and meets Lana and Eva. Alex is then invited to stay to work on the project. Much better plot than this melodrama that gives you no real payoff.

Not English

Honestly it looks like it would be a pretty good movie from what I watched. I selected it because it said audio and subtitles were in English. Movie is not in English. As I mentioned before..it might be pretty good, however I couldn't understand it.

Worst Amazon Shopping Experience Ever!!
Verified purchase
I’ve been shopping on Amazon for a number of years, and have always had relatively satisfactory results. However, recently I had one of the worst shopping experiences imaginable. Almost everyone involved in this fiasco had some share of the blame.
I wanted to buy a particular DVD: Eva (2011) on Blu-ray, I couldn’t find it on any of the typical websites, Amazon, eBay, DeepDiscount or Overstock. I did a google search and was given a link to an Amazon listing from an Amazon re-seller (? go figure)! The price ($21.89) was more than I wanted to spend, but decided to buy it anyway because it is one of the best sci-fi films I’ve seen, and because it was advertised as “USA Compatible,” which I assumed was 1) formatted for region 1 and 2) had English subtitles.
For some reason this DVD was shipped registered mail, which complicated its arrival. I wasn’t home when the first delivery attempt was made and I rescheduled it for delivery the next day. I waited all day for this delivery, even staying home from an important class I was scheduled to attend, but it didn’t arrive. Finally the next day I found it in my mailbox (22 days after I had ordered it!!). When I tried to play it, it played fine (in Spanish), but there was no access to English subtitles. Statistics show that less than 16% of Americans are fluent in Spanish, so the re-seller was incorrect to say that this DVD was “USA Compatible,” So, now I’m stuck with a DVD that I can’t enjoy.

Excellent international shipping, excellent condition, movie in DVD at very low resolution
Verified purchase
In spite of an international shipping and its concomitant delay, item arrived in good condition and the DVD played flawlessly.
I was disappointed with this particular Special edition because, compared to the Netflix video, it had:
- Absolutely no captions whatsoever.
- Movie in DVD is a low-resolution, ultra-compressed version with plenty of motion artifacts and pixelation. It's as if this movie has been dangerously compressed so as to fit into a medium with not enough density, like 2-GB media, rather than a 4.7 GB or 8.5 GB DVD.
I still need to check the Blu Ray media included, but the version in DVD is disappointing.
- Likewise, bonus features are non-existent. To me, that's a major component of my movie experience. Probably the lack of space in the media used played a role, too.

Language is not English, What is it?
Verified purchase
It's hard to believe with all the technology they have not to mention all the AI programs they run to steer us to the products they think we want and they can't figure out what Language the movie is in.
Can't they make a filter that we can select saying ENGLISH ONLY? OH that's right if they keep mislabeling the movies and TV series that wouldn't work. Stupid me....
