In the not-so-distant future, a married man investigates a counterfeiter and ends up the perpetrator of an ethical crime in Code 46, the latest film from prolific British director Michael Winterbottom. Set against the backdrop of a technologically advanced Shanghai, where people are only allowed to travel between countries with official passports called "papelles," the film charts the efforts of Seattle native William (Tim Robbins) to get to the bottom of a contraband-papelle operation within the walls of a high-tech company that manufactures them. There he finds Maria (Samantha Morton), an enigmatic young woman who may or may not be selling the passports on the black market. William has a brief affair with Maria, which, despite his attempts to return home, causes him to become embroiled in an even bigger controversy in Shanghai. ~ Michael Hastings, Rovi

this one should be sifted to the bottom of the litter box. I've admired Tim Robbins, even worked with him, and this was a big OOPS. As stated above, no chemistry, well some, but oddly 'squirmy' chemistry. Something discontent about it, and definitely gratuatious frontal nudity with unwanted s/m undertones. AS usual Hollywood paired older man/much younger woman. TR needs to choose scripts for more reason than to keep his kids in private school in the Village, perhaps he should go back to directing and see how that goes, these pouty roles are dreary. I'm extremely glad I didn't pay admission, I'd ask for my money back, twenty minutes into I wanted to run to the exit, realizing that would be my FRONT DOOR!
In lamens, this movie is a lot like "Lost in Translation" but set in the future. I would only suggest this movie if you are a open minded movie watcher and don't require a story line to be right in your face or have tons of chase seens and action every two seconds.
