When a science experiment goes wrong resulting in a catastrophic virus attacking all life forms on the earth, a 13-year-old girl named Vesper and her father are determined to beat the odds no matter what.

Film directing duo Kristina Buozyte and Bruno Samper, who’ve worked together on several projects in the likes of “Vanishing Waves” and “ABCs of Death 2” share with us their latest proposition – Vesper.

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 but is this what the earth needs? Let’s dive into the review.

Upon my first introduction to the film, I released that words do very little to describe the grotesque condition that the earth has been left in.

Plants and animals alike have mutated into things that come straight out of a horror movie, even using the word horror movie doesn’t emphasize the distorted state that things are in.

I mean there are these animals right, which appear to resemble snakes in some way, shape, or form, however, they pop out of the ground and start terrorizing anyone or anything that enters their territory.

To paint a more vivid picture of what I’m talking about, imagine the arcade game Whack-A-Mole, however, instead of toy objects, it’s snakes. Aggressive deformed snakes.

Not to mention, the state of the earth almost compels you to shed a tear. The land is not fertile, growing your crop is inevitably impossible and family cannot be trusted.

This film truly takes the worst that you can imagine and twists it into an even more hellish reality.

If you think it’s only the earth that is trying to feed on you, well you thought wrong. There’s this character by the name of Jonas played by Eddie Marsan.

This man is Vesper’s uncle and yet, the despicable things he does to survive in this harsh environment should have him classified as a bona fide psychopath, locked away in a cell somewhere with the keys thrown away and never to be found again.

You know matters are beyond terrible when incest has become normal and family members see one another not as humans but reproducing slaves.

Though I do understand that not everyone will agree with my earlier opinion on locking the uncle away and throwing the key. It’s a matter of perspective.

Being the healthiest adult around, with a football team of a family, life has thrown him into the deep end and he has learned his way of surviving with the hand he was dealt, even at the cost of his children.

When you take the time to think and evaluate some of the things that this film shows you, you release that it’s centered around the strength and ability that humans have, which is holding onto hope.

Hope plays a fundamental aspect in this movie because, without it, I don’t believe anyone would survive these conditions on any given day.

Overall, Vesper is a tragic film that tries to ignite a flame in its audience with its message about human conviction and the ability to never lose hope.


My only disappointment is that we never get enough action scenes even with all that advanced technology and a sudden overwhelming end.

We spend so much time in the same locations that when we finally start to move forward and see a glimpse of light, the movie as well just concludes. Leaving us as the audience to come up with their conclusion.

Though the cast is small, never once did I feel like the movie is too long or had bad pacing. I thoroughly enjoyed this film, especially its stunning CGI work.


My favorite scene throughout this movie would have to be the scene when Vesper introduced Camellia to her plants. That scene was so spectacular as if they brought the ocean to land. The plants all reminded me of the things that resemble what we see only in the ocean.

For this, I give Vesper a 3.6 out of 5 ratings.

Do you think there will be a second installment, let me know, and let’s get the conversation started?

Also, let me know whether you watched Vesper and your thoughts on the movie. Do you agree with my review or not? If not, leave your opinion in the comments section below.
