  • a.k.a. Equilibrium - Killer of Emotions

Germany German (Deutsch)

Keine Bücher, keine Bilder, keine Musik ... Jegliches Vergnügen ist den Menschen verboten. In Libria werden alle Gefühle der Bürger unterdrückt. Zu diesem Zweck muss jeder täglich eine von der Regierung verordnete Dosis Librium schlucken. Das Verweigern der bitteren Pille bedeutet unweigerlich den Tod. Librias Volk vegetiert im permanenten Dämmerzustand und Elite-Offizier John Preston überwacht den verordneten Volksrausch. Bis er eines Tages seine eigene Dosis Librium vergisst. Als einstiger Verfolger sämtlicher librischer Gesetze wird er nun auf einmal selbst zum Verfolgten. Doch mit nun neuen menschlichen Regungen könnte Preston der Einzige sein, der das totalitäre System zu Fall bringen kann. Wären da nicht seine Gegner, die sich bereits auf seine Fährte gesetzt haben.

France French (Français)

Dans les années 2070, dans la citadelle de Libria, les émotions n'existent plus, supprimées par l'absorption quotidienne de Prozium. Cette drogue anti-anxiété rend les gens plus heureux et plus productifs. Les individus ont ainsi accepté de mettre de côté leur liberté pour vivre en harmonie avec leur dirigeant spirituel connu sous le nom de Père. Les personnes qui refusent de prendre leur dose sont considérées comme des rebelles et vivent en retrait de la ville. S'ils sont pris à jeun, c'est la peine de mort assurée. John Preston travaille au service de Père et applique la loi à la lettre. Un jour, celui-ci brise le flacon de sa dose et n'a pas le temps de s'en procurer une de rechange. Il est alors submergé par toute une gamme d'émotions. Victime d'un revirement spirituel qui le confronte à ses supérieurs hiérarchiques, il mène l'enquête sur ce nouvel état de vie.

Italy Italian (Italiano)

In un futuro non meglio precisato, l'aggressività umana è diventato un tale problema da dover essere controllato da parte dell'autorità con la somministrazione obbligatoria di calmanti e la messa fuorilegge di ogni tipo di sentimento. I sudditi di questa nazione-modello, Libria, seguono docili le istruzioni ricevute dal Padre, sorta di dittatore teocrate, e la legge è garantita da temibili squadre di funzionari-poliziotti. Uno di questi, però, è roso dai sensi di colpa per aver fatto morire la moglie senza battere ciglio, e quando si dimentica di prendere la medicina decide di ribellarsi al sistema, e di unirsi ai rivoluzionari che stazionano nel sottosuolo per uccidere il Padre e ripristinare i sentimenti.
