This film is a sequel to what was clearly quite an old film in the competition. It opens with a few quick shots of the original, showing us the location, a look at the main character and really emphasising the technical limitations of the time, as I've said in other reviews, this is an interesting way to open your film as you only have so few precious minutes to tell the story. However, when it cuts to the 2017 footage I threw up my hands and let out an audible "fuck!" because I'd just seen the best use of Ultra and any hope I or anyone else had of taking home the Ultra award disappeared.
For the next minute or two I was fully on board (or on deck, if I'm keeping with the nautical theme. Nah, on board is fine) with the film, and I even felt a sense of nostalgia sweep over me as I felt this strong connection to characters in a film I'd never seen. The world building and set up was excellent.
I did however feel myself less taken by the Bookubus appearing and the events thereafter but it's almost a victim of me loving the start so much that the end simply couldn't live up to it.
A very well done film technically as well but I don't feel I need to point that out!
