Details: Jérémie Périn / France / 2023 / 85 mins / Animation

With the voices of: Léa Drucker, Mathieu Amalric, Daniel Njo Lobé


Set in the 23rd century on Mars, this animation feature follows the investigation of a murder case by private investigator Aline Ruby and her android companion. An intriguing story of brain farms, corruption, and robots.

“Mars Express serves a heady pop-culture cocktail, mixing hard-boiled fiction with science-fantasy comix, riffing on Philip Marlow and Philip K. Dick (with winks to Watchmen and Robocop and oh, so many more) with a mystery yarn that places humans and cyborgs on equal footing.” Variety

“A visually stylish sci-fi that wrestles with some of the questions that we are only just beginning to address about our relationship with AI.”
