“Chromosome 3 (1979) and Crash (1996) is a kind of twisted branch, which also echoes its name in the 1970s medium-length film, both in retro and futuristic setting, where insane eroticism and welcoming humor revolve. Viggo Mortensen. Director’s annoying and charismatic al A group of beautiful, neurotic female characters. ” (SB and BT) 4/5

According to the first:

“Between music, Stuart’s hallucinatory acting, almost comic exaggerations of certain situations, twelve sound structures or sometimes absurd gossip establishes a fun distance. It is this distance that makes this SF tale bizarre, playful and hypnotic.” (Gael Golhen) 3/5
