Kubrickova Paklena naranča jedna je od ponajboljih sf adaptacija u povijesti žanra. Film je nastao prema romanu Anthonyja Burgessa i danas ima kultni status. Alex u režiji Floriana Frerichsa u postapokaliptičnoj budućnosti predstavlja jedan poseban hommage.
Florian Frerichs who made cool short movie Cold Storage is in a work with his first full length movie. Alex should hit the cinemas in January 2014. and has strong connections to a cult movie A Clockwork Orange.
In the near future the society of a megalopolis is divided into two fractions: on one side a super-rich minority, led by the ruthless dictator Lucius (Werner Daehn), living a life of debauchery and decadence. On the other side the vast majority, dwelling in different degrees of nearly unbearable poverty.
When the young Frederick (Nikolai Kinski) comes in possession of the partial copy of a long forbidden Stanley Kubrick movie, it sparks a growing movement amongst the city’s formerly aimless youths, developing fast into serious opposition to the ruling system, which retaliates with rapidly increasing brutality. Frederick becomes Alex, his friends the new droogs. But are they even aware of the consequences of their actions?
