Immensely interesting and riveting!  The film explores the possibilities of  a jiminy cricket implanted in men's brains that somehow makes them too dependent on the chip.  Subconsciously people have the tendency  for that automatic mode,  in reality.  There are persons who are "hackers" that control the lives of people who succumb to them out of fear and pressure.  This jiminy cricket chip would be way more manageable I guess, as it can be taken out,  anytime you want it, compared to real domineering persons and hackers of minds. Engaging and  with the extraordinary touch of Denis Lavant  making scenes more eerie and suspenseful.  Benjamin Breniere also gives a magnetic performance in this flick.  Definitely a must-watch!
