Code 46 (2003)
Next are two reviews that pretty much reveal the themes embodied in the movie. I have high-lighted, through boldfacing, the parts I considered relevant to a predictive programming oriented discussion. At the end of each high-lighted segment is attached a footnote <span style="color:#FF0000">number referring to an expansion written below the two following reviews.
Quote:Code 46 is a love story set in a Brave New World-type near-future where cities are heavily controlled and only accessible through checkpoints.<span style="color:#FF0000">(1) People cannot travel unless they have "papelles," a special travel permit issued by the totalitarianistic government, the "Sphinx".<span style="color:#FF0000">(1) Outside these cities, the desert has taken over and shanty towns are jammed with non-citizens - people without papelles forced to live primitive lives.<span style="color:#FF0000">(1) William is a family man who works as a government investigator. When he is sent to Shanghai to solve a case of fake papelles, he meets a woman named Maria. Although he realizes she is behind the forgeries, he cannot help but fall completely in love with her. He hides her crime and they have a wild, passionate affair that can only last as long as his papelles: 24 hours. Back home, William is obessed with the memory of Maria. When the original investigation is inevitably re-opened a week later and William is sent back to finish the work he started, he tracks her down, only to discover she has been accused of a Code 46 violation<span style="color:#FF0000">(2) and any further relationship is impossible.

Quote: It is the not-too-distant future, in a world which appears to suffer from overpopulation and large scale environmental degradation.<span style="color:#FF0000">(1) The population is divided between those who live "inside", in high density cities physically separated from "outside", where a poor underclasses lives. Access into and travel between the cities is highly restricted, and regulated through the use of health cover documents, known as "papelles" <span style="color:#FF0000">(1)in the global pidgin language of the day. This comprises elements of English, Spanish, French, Arabic, Italian, Urdu and Mandarin.<span style="color:#FF0000">(3)http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Code_46
The viewer is confronted with the following elements of predictive programming:
Overpopulation is a given. Cities are cordoned off and inaccessible without special travel permits, called "Papelles" implemented through thumb or finger scanning. The viewer is made aware of a futuristic prospect of over-population and government control exercised by stringent travel restrictions.
Code 46: Compelling regulations are put in effect regarding reproduction. The natural way to conceive children has taken a backseat and "in-vitro" ("test tubes") ways of conception seem to have gained prominence, while reproduction is subjected to restrictive laws. The viewer is made aware to the idea that the government will have more say in the specificity of the children you may want to have than Mother Nature.
[*]There seems to be one global language spoken, a mixture of several widely spoken languages but predominantly consisting of English, and containing traces of Spanish and French. The emphasis of the presence of a global language seems to familiarize the viewer with the concept of globalization and unification a bit further.
[*]The daylight seems have a toxic influence on the wellbeing of humans, in contrast with the darkness of the night which is bearable for humans. This theme seems to paint a scenario in which the world has fallen victim to its own pollution. A fashionable but no way scientifically endorsed cause for global pollution is humanly induced CO2 emission. The viewer may feel a certain sense of commitment to help reduce global pollution by accepting responsibility in contributing towards lessening CO2 emissions. As such, this theme is highly compatible with the whole Global Warming myth and welcomes the much touted but phony CO2 emission discouragement swindle dressed up as a remedy, called Carbon Tax.
[*]Viral-based technology abounds. The society of the future seems to feature a versatile virus-mediated technology capable of manipulating (enhancing or restricting) the host of a virus in a number of ways:
[*]"Empathy viruses" function to obtain unstated information from people if they voluntarily reveal something about themselves to the carrier of this virus.<>
[*]Unauthorized visits to certain cities can be met with death if no prior immunity for locally prevalent viruses has been obtained.<>
[*]A virus is given to Code46 violators, which is responsible for causing violent adrenaline reactions in case recidivism should occur between two Code46 violators.<>
[*]Memory retention can be manipulated by undisclosed neurological/ neurosurgical technology. That is, memory a person has of a specific event can either be wiped or, if they were wiped before, can also be restored again. This suggests that the process of the erasure of a memory actually consists of a reversible suspension of conscious access to that memory.
The movie also alludes to a technology that enables retrieval of memories and place them into electronic storage devices.
At some stage there's a woman revealing to the main character that she belongs to a religion she refers to as "Christian Science." Perhaps this is to make the viewer aware of any possible profound future merger between science and Christianity. Given its rather "progressive" tendencies nowadays, this may be the choice future garb the Roman Catholic Church may want to cloak itself in.<>
