Coma (2019) is a science-fiction and fantasy movie that is causing a very good impression in its home country due to its impressive special effects and fascinating story. It is the feature film debut of young filmmaker Nikita Argunov, a digital effects artist and visual effects supervisor who has participated in epic productions like Mongol: The Rise of Genghis Khan (2007). He was also the writer of the screenplay together with Timofei Dekin and Aleksey Gravitskiy.
The artfully unwinding and disconcerting story of Coma (2019) centers on a young and talented architect who returns to consciousness after a horrific accident only to find himself in a strange and frightening dystopian world. It is a visually bewildering landscape, simultaneously rural and futuristically urban, filled with the visualizations of the memories of all current coma patients. Just like human memory and dreams, this world is fragmented, chaotic and unstable. This is COMA, where ice caps, rivers and cities can all exist in the space of a single room and the traditional laws of physics no longer apply. The architect must decipher the exact laws and regulations of COMA as he fights to survive, meets the love of his life and frantically searches for the exit to the real world, which he will have to get acquainted with all over again – if it even still exists.
Milos Bikovic, Lyubov Aksyonova, Aleksey Serebryakov, Anton Pampushnyy, Rinal Mukhametov, Vilen Babichev, Albert Kobrovsky and Polina Kuzminskaya form the main cast of the movie, which has been a Big Cinema House production.
Coma (2019) already had a domestic Russian release where it achieved very positive opinions. The movie has been called to be some kind of a hybrid between The Matrix (1999), Inception (2010) and Source Code (2011), which adds even more interest to the story. The film will be released in theaters by Kino Film Corp and Capelight Pictures on November 22, 2019, to be followed by digital availability as well as on DVD and Blu-ray through Dark Sky Films and Capelight Pictures in the first quarter of 2020.
Now, the first official trailer in English version is already out. You can watch it here, via the official Youtube channel of KinoCheck International:
