A deserted city is the setting, where a woman walks alone trying to approach and enter the forbidden zone. Traps and the morning patrol lurk everywhere. Electronic voices summon the (non-existent) people to abandon the city. Can a love affair in this place survive?

It's not easy to track down (ordering a copy through Nikos Nikolaidis' official site is your best bet), but "Morning Patrol" is a must for Sci-Fi fans. A beautiful tone poem of a film, with sumptuously lit and photographed post-apocalyptic vistas to rival "Stalker," an elegiac synth score, subtle performances, and pithy, poetic excerpts from the likes of Ray Chandler and Philip K. Dick.
Was going through old ratings and forgot I had watched this months ago...definitely better than Singapore Sling, mostly for the setting, though I remember almost nothing else about it save when she goes to the theater.
