In the labyrinthine streets of 21st century Paris, where every move is monitored and ever action recorded, a mysterious kidnapping sets into motion a catastrophic series of events that could ultimately prove the downfall of civilization. The year is 2054, and the Avalon Corporation has securely woven its way into every aspect of modern living by making youth and beauty the most valued commodity around. Troubles arises in the City of Lights when a high-profile scientist named Ilona (voice of Romola Garai) is kidnapped, and policeman Barthélémy Karas (voice of Daniel Craig) is assigned the task of solving the case. As his investigation leads Karas down a menacing path where death lurks around every bend, he soon discovers that events that took place in 2006 have cast a dark shadow over the future of humankind. A film that mixes Blade Runner aesthetics with stark, Sin City-style visuals, Renaissance was filmed using motion-capture animation and features extravagant production design by Alfred Frazzani (Immortel Ad Vitam).

Renaissance 3.3 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 3 reviews.

This movie looked like it was shot live action and printed on litho film. You could discern male from female, but not much more. Impossible to keep track of characters. It was compared to blade runner. I don't see it.

Though there are billions of computer generated films, this one sets itself apart by its setting, its willful lack of color scheme, and it story. It reminds one of Blade Runner, which is always the way, but it still has its own set of orignal characters and ideas.

Using high contrast animation this film is a modern blend of film noir and anime. The story is a classic crime drama. The lead could have been played by Bogart himself. There is also a bit of a sci-fi influence that adds to the suspence.
