    I love that they wanted to tell a smaller-scale story with big implications, something that indie films tend to do significantly better than their large-budget, Hollywood counterparts. Whilst there are some great ideas here, there are also a number of elements missing narratively which not only means certain things feel under-explained, but also that it didn't pack the punch I think it hoped to. That being said, any shortcomings that ‘Vesper' has in the story department it makes up for with outstanding visual and practical effects, as well as superb production design, drawing you into an inventive and atmospheric world.

    'Vesper' is a 2022 apocalyptic sci-fi drama that is potentially the most 'real' film of it's genre I've seen. SYNOPSIS: 'Struggling to survive with her father after the collapse of Earth's ecosystem, 13-year-old Vesper must use her wits, strength and bio-hacking abilities to fight for the future.' If you want a dark and dirty apocalyptic future where the world moves terribly slow, then this is the film for you. Unfortunately though, the story is muddled, incoherent at times and an absolute slog to get through. However, for a small indie movie, the special effects are stunning, and this is a world you could really see existing. It's inventive and atmospheric, but maybe too clever for it's own good at times. 6/10

    Absolutely incoherent. Ending makes no sense. Most of it makes no sense. A vanity project for the creator who felt zero responsibility to tell a good story and just wanted an excuse to paste post apocalyptic visuals onto a screen.

    Too dark, depressing and sadistic.

    I loved every second of it. The storyline, the characters, the pace, the suspence, the world building, the ending.

    Quality sets, a lived-in (and living) world, and lots of creative world-building cannot make up for a slow, boring and cliché-ridden plot populated with cardboard characters.

    Vesper is a peculiar journey to a future that's dated distantly in calendars yet no so far considering the lamentation of the unprivileged. A hope for all pilgrims millions and billions, the metaphorical value of "Pilgrims" is excellent and touching. A never ending harsh road chosen by the scrap collectors. Vesper is a wonderful commentary about the classes. One of the biggest specialties was the innovative ideas on the futuristic wilderness. Interesting characters and a tremendous performance by the cast. Great visuals and sound effects. Powerful cinematography to speak to the emotions. Considering all of this Vesper is an excellent new release on post apocalyptic world.

    This movie will stand the test of time and become a cult classic. If you're looking for MCU style whoosh bang sci-fi, this ain't the movie for you. If you like small ensemble serious sci-fi like Solaris, Ex-Machina, Moon, etc, you will love this movie.

    I turned it off after 30 minutes of trying to understand it but I was bored.

    The world building, imaginative visuals and thoughtful characterizations really came together. Strongly recommend for fans of the somber.
