Starring cult actor Christopher Lambert (HIGHLANDER, MORTAL KOMBAT), NIRVANA is an Italian cyberpunk film that considers the implications of artificial intelligence. Jimi (Lambert) is a computer programmer who has just finished a new game, called Nirvana. But he is shocked to discover that Solo, the protagonist of Nirvana, has developed self-awareness. Solo tires of being forced to enact the same scenario again and again, and asks Jimi to shut the game down before it is made available to the public and has to live his hellish existence forever. But in order to do so, Jimi will have to recruit the services of a mysterious hacker to get into his company's files, where Nirvana is stored. In the mold of Cronenberg's EXISTENZ, NIRVANA was directed by Gabriele Salvatores (I'M NOT SCARED, MEDITERRANEO).
