Fang Rung is a MAN DIVIDED not just by loyalties, but by time itself. The year is 2095. A catastrophic rise in both sea and sodium levels has resulted in massive species extinctions, and humanity’s outlook is bleak. Time travel, however, has been achieved. A person is split in two and one is sent back in time while the other maintains control in the present. Fang Rung is now that split person, or QEDA. He is also the head of the Agency that has banned time travel as treason. In 2017, a scientist was developing a protein that would have averted the global crisis. But before completing it, she died in a plane crash. Fang Rung now sends his QEDA back to our time to retrieve this formula while being hunted for time treason in 2095. Unlike many films of this genre, MAN DIVIDED terrifies on an intellectual and emotional level as well as a visceral one. This is speculative cinema at its most exciting and disturbing. (In Danish with subtitles) —C.R.
