review by
Mike Haberfelner

In the future, not even death comes for free - not anymore since it was discovered that even the clinically dead still have some energy residue to exploit ... so if you owe money to the banks, your body and mind will be exploited - unless of course you've got death insurance, which is pretty much the only thing that keeps your body from being desecrated after the end of your natural life.

Vincent (Clemens Schick) is a death insurance salesman, and one of the best there is - but then he's supposed to take down Lisa (Lena Lauzemis), an anti-death exploitation activist ... and he falls in love with her and grows more and more sympathetic to her cause - to a point where he helps her and other activists to cause a blackout and raid the central dead body storage. He risks it all in a move that might cost him everything he has worked for - and too bad then that his employer is anticipating every move he makes to take the activists down ...


Stille Reverven is a quite intelligent piece of anti-utopian science fiction, very much reminiscent of 1970s paranoia thrillers like Soylent Green, based on a lovably original premise, subtly directed and featuring a competent ensemble cast - all of which adds up to a very cool experience!
