Commentaries and bibliography
TITANIUM de Dmitry Grachev : la critique du film [Sortie DVD], Nicolas RIEUX, mondocine.net, 2015
Dmitrii Grachev, The Calculator (Vychislitel’, 2014), Alexander PROKHOROV, Kinokultura, 2014
 
The Russian original title 'Vychislitel' ('calculator') refers to the special skills of Ervin. He is a rather emotionless guy who calculates his chances to survive very carefully. Thus we get a duel between the thinking man and the violent one, quite the opposite of 'Riddick' where simply only the strong survive. In a good tradition of Russian SF this movie is character driven, and the dialogs between Ervin and Kristi during their voyage are well written. I was less convinced with the off monologues, too wordy, explaining more than necessary, while more important questions remain open, for example the motivation of the government and the reasons for the system. All in all, 'Titanium' aka 'Vychislitel' is an interesting movie, worth watching, but not top of the crop in independent SF.
