Immortel (ad VItam) (2004)
Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database
This movie is set in the year 2095, hence the presence of mutant humans and extraterrestrials. The main character is known as Jill. She is not human. When she is discovered by Dr. Elma Turner she is diagnosed as being the most interesting genetic test subject Turner has ever come across. Her organs are not in the right place, she has no memory and she appears, biologically to be only three months old. Turner gives her a break, gives her an identity card and a place to stay, in exchange for being her guinea-pig to work on and discover more about. Nicopol is a frozen prisoner who is due to be released a year after the film is set. There is a problem in the prisoner ward and several are thrown down to grow (dying in the process), including Nicopol (but only his leg). There is a lot more to this story but I can't disclose it in this summary, I don't have the words.

- Nikopol: Fuck you! Horus: Right, but let's fuck her again first.
Horus: You believe in God? Nikopol: I don't even have that to fall back on. Horus: I suggest you believe in me, Nikopol. Nikopol: Do I have a choice? Horus: I am afraid not.
Horus: Children, my human children, I am back.
Nikopol: You piece of shit! Your objectives are shit. Your filthy rapist god ambitions are shit. You're full of shit, Horus! Horus: Coming from a human, remarks like that don't carry much weight.
Horus: [referring to Jill] Young women like her are rare. Extremely rare. There are only a few of them in the entire universe. No one knows why they appear in one world or another. They don't even know who they are themselves, and the power they have. Nikopol: What power? Horus: The greatest power of all. The power to procreate with God.
- Was one of several films around the world that were the first to use an entirely "digital backlot" (i.e. the actors were all shot in front of blue- and green-screens with all the backgrounds added in post-production, a technique which has been used for TV, video and video game production for many years). Fans debate on which movie was shot first, but the other movies include: Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow (2004), Casshern (2004), and Sin City (2005).
The patient being treated by Doctor Emma Turner wears a shirt printed with Enki Bilal's artwork.
Nikopol's first name in the comics is Alcide.
Based upon the first two volumes of the Nikopol trilogy, Carnival of the Immortals and The Woman Trap. Many characters and plot elements were changed or added for the movie.
The poem Nikopol is reciting in his first scenes is "Une charogne" (The carcass) by Charles Baudelaire.
