A re-imagination of the 1983 film for a generation raised on Baz Luhrmann films and "Glee."
A dark and challenging film and those searching for escapist fare might find that "Vivarium" is a little too intense for comfort.
Works not because of anything surprising in the story but because the filmmakers have paid such attention to the way in which it is crafted that it unfolds effortlessly and with great panache.
