JUPITER HOLDJA / Jupiter's Moon

JUPITER HOLDJA / Jupiter's Moon

Aryan, a young migrant fleeing Syria, is shot down by a trigger-happy cop, only to rise from the dead. Unfazed by his bullet wounds, Aryan soars into the dubious care of shady Doctor Stern - who sees the financial benefit of having a charge who can perform miracles on command in exchange for an extra fee. It's a double act straight out of Children of Men or, perhaps more appropriately, pre-millennial Arnold Schwarzenegger vehicle End of Days: the innocent placed under the wing of the fallen and the faithless, finding purpose and redemption against the backdrop of a degraded society. (Michael Leader, Sight & Sound)
