Directed by influential comic book artist Enki Bilal, based on his own graphic novels, Immortal is one of the first films in the world to be shot almost entirely on green screen, along with Sin City and Sky Captain and The World of Tomorrow. Immortal is a film of extraordinary vision and a treat for comic book and sci-fi fans alike and has never before been released in the UK. In the year 2095, a giant extraterrestrial pyramid appears over New York. Inside, the ancient Egyptian god Horus is told he has just seven days on Earth before his destruction. Seven days to revisit the world he helped create, and mate with the beautiful blue haired woman Jill Bioscopin (Linda Hardy) in this maze of a city. In order to seduce Jill, Horus must find a human body capable of hosting his own form. In his search for a body that can be possessed without being destroyed, Horus leaves a trail of death and bloodshed. He finally discovers Nikopol (Thomas Kretchmann, King Kong, The Pianist), a rebel leader who has been cryogenically frozen for 30 years. Together, Nikopol and Horus pursue Jill, whose strange powers are also being investigated by Doctor Elam Turner (Charlotte Rampling, Swimming Pool).
