It's a European sci-fi that depicts dystopian future after ecological and societal collapse. It has what European cinema has to offer: slow scenes, atmosphere, normal-looking actors, fresh idea. What it lacks: wokeness, tokenism, preachy tone, two dudes beating each other towards the end of the film.

Vesper is co-written and co-directed by a woman. It centers a girl, trying to get by in this dystopian world, trying to fix it the way she is able to. A strange woman comes into her life and their bonding is so heartwarming.

Certain questions were not answered throughout the film, and there are some silly plot holes/editing mistakes, but they don't ruin the experience. Instead, the unanswered questions leave me hungry for more.

There are some disgusting scenes in the beginning of the film, but otherwise gore and violence is there only when it's justified.
