Dividing Bar

There's a certain thinness to this dystopia - we learn nothing about the ideology of the ruling group. The boy's father is taken away for 'speaking out', but we are never told what precisely he spoke out against. The plot doesn't really seem to go anywhere in particular. Furthermore, the film seems to contrast a repressive imagined future with a supposedly 'free' present, despite the fact that ubiquitous CCTV and populations susceptible to mass manipulation on the basis of irrational fears are a characteristic of our own societies.
