It’s Valentine’s Day and what better way of spending this celebratory day of love than watching a Netflix sci-fi series all about interchangeable human bodies and death no longer being permanent! We wouldn’t want to spend it any other way.
Based on the classic cyberpunk noir novel by Richard K. Morgan, Altered Carbon is an intriguing story of murder, love, sex and betrayal, set more than 300 years in the future. Society has been transformed by new technology: consciousness can be digitised; human bodies are interchangeable; death is no longer permanent.
Takeshi Kovacs is the lone surviving soldier in a group of elite interstellar warriors who were defeated in an uprising against the new world order. His mind was imprisoned – on ice – for centuries until Laurens Bancroft, an impossibly wealthy, long-lived man, offers Kovacs the chance to live again. In exchange, Kovacs has to solve a murder …that of Bancroft himself.
We at MCM are super excited to show you this exclusive clip from Netflix and the cast of Altered Carbon, all about today’s romantic subject of love – but in another body.
“When you’re in love with somebody, you’re also intoxicated by them.” …It’s OK, Joel, even if you’re more than 300 years in the future, you will always be our Valentine.
