Humans, mutants, of New York or elsewhere, say no to synthetic flesh and virtual brain. Say no to Eugenics.
Spirit of Nikopol

Immortal (original French title: Immortel (ad vitam)) is a 2004 Science Fiction / Fantasy film directed by Enki Bilal, loosely based on his Nikopol Trilogy series of comic books (specifically, the albums "The Carnival of Immortals" and "The Woman Trap").

It is the year 2095, New York City is a dystopian metropolis ruled by corrupt politicians controlled by a powerful corporation. The population consists of mutants, aliens and cybernetically/genetically enchanced humans, who are segregated by levels (with the humans on top).

One day, a mysterious hovering pyramid appears over the cityscape, a vessel for the Egyptian gods who are about to condemn their fellow, Horus, to eternal prison for rebellion. Before his sentence is carried out, he is given seven days to look upon his creation.

Meanwhile, equally strange events unfold in the city: Central Park is encased by a barrier of unknown origin dubbed "The Intrusion Zone"; Jill, a blue-haired, white-skinned woman with abnormal physiology and supernatural powers is captured in the lower district by the Eugenics Corporation; a mauled police inspector investigates the gory murders of a new serial killer and a mechanical failure enables Nikopol, a political dissident sentenced to 30 years of hibernation to escape from prison a year early.

It's almost like some Greek tragedy, all the pieces slowly coming together.

Do not, for the love of Horus, confuse with My Immortal
