The world's first human-android acting duo, called Android Theater Project, is the collaborative brainchild of noted Japanese playwright Oriza Hirata and the leading robotics scientist Hiroshi Ishiguro. "Sayonara" is a remakable android play and has been adapted to feature film by the acclaimed filmmaker Koji Fukada (Hospitalité, Au revoir l’été). In this film project the setting of the story is largely expanded, depicting time and space in a way which can only be achieved in film, examining life and death though the communication between dying human and immortal android.

Eigenlijk heb ik maar 3 woorden nodig om deze film te omschrijven. TRAAG, TRAGER, TRAAGST. Het gegeven van een androide verzorgster in een post nucleair Japan is mooi uitgangspunt. Maar het mag allemaal wel wat sneller zeg.  Ik snap dat alles uitzichtloos en zinloos is, maar het had iets vlotter gemogen.
