Story


Directed by Terry Gilliam ("Brazil," "Twelve Monkeys," "Monty Python and the Holy Grail"), "The Zero Theorem" stars two-time Academy Award winner Christoph Waltz ("Django Unchained," "Inglorious Basterds") as Qohen Leth, an eccentric and reclusive computer genius plagued with existential angst. Living in isolation in a burnt-out church, Qohen is obsessively working on a mysterious project personally delegated to him by Management (Matt Damon) aimed at discovering the meaning of life - or the lack thereof - once and for all. Increasingly disturbed by unwanted visits from people he doesn't fully trust, including the flirtatious Bainsley (Melanie Thierry), Management's wunderkind son Bob (Lucas Hedges), his unpredictable colleague Joby (David Thewlis), and would-be digital therapist Dr. Shrink-Rom (Tilda Swinton), it's only when he experiences the power of love and desire that he's able to understand his own reason for being.

by Deborah Young [Hollywood Reporter]
“..Terry Gilliam's 'The Zero Theorem' is a lo-fi, future-tech farce with an air of high-end cyber panto..”
by Dave Calhoun [Time Out]
