Reviews

"Mars Express is the rare example of an animated feature that warrants an almost immediate rewatch upon completion, if only to appreciate the craftsmanship of its presentation. It’s a densely layered sci-fi story that’s light on proper nouns, but heavy on subtext... A rare example of “adult” animation that treats its audience like adults, and its execution elevates its premise until it stands confidently as one of the year’s best animated features."
– POLYGON

"In the end, more than the arresting action or the unfolding of the mystery, Mars Express finds deeper truths that are as tragic as they are transcendent. This makes it a sci-fi tapestry not just worth getting lost in, but one that is deeply human as well."
– COLLIDER

"[A] visually exciting, smart, engaging detective story that will both impress with it’s animated quality and eventually make you forget your even watching animation."
– FORBES

"A gripping, heady and refreshing 2D animated take on the perils of man and machine coexisting, Périn’s first feature as a director inserts the necessary exposition in a mostly natural manner so we incrementally become aware of how this reality functions."

Director Q&A

Overview

In a bustling Martian city of the 23rd century, jaded detective Aline Ruby and her unique partner, the android Carlos Rivera with human memories, investigate a hacker's murder. As they delve deeper, their search uncovers a dark secret society and a revolutionary code. This code promises to liberate androids from human control, but the truth is far more sinister. It's another form of manipulation.

Aline and Carlos race against time to expose the truth. Their pursuit leads them through the neon-lit Martian underbelly, where humans and various androids co-exist with simmering tension. Aline, a recovering alcoholic, grapples with her own demons as the case takes a dangerous turn. The climax explodes under a malfunctioning Martian dome, a symbolic shattering of the boundaries between humans and their creations.

MARS EXPRESS is a blend of action, mystery, and social commentary. It explores themes of identity, freedom, and the ever-evolving relationship between humanity and technology, all wrapped in a visually stunning blend of hand-drawn characters and digital Martian landscapes.
