Bigbug is a science fiction comedy film that provides a glimpse into the future. As technology continues to grow at an unprecedented rate, man-made intelligence and robots could soon dominate our world. This film is set in the year 2045 and showcases a futuristic world filled with artificial intelligence and android robots. In this article, you’ll find a synopsis and review of this movie.


Bigbug, a Gaumont Film Company and Netflix production, is directed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet and stars Isabelle Nanty, Elsa Zylberstein, and Claude Perron. The movie is set in the future where Alice, the protagonist, lives in a home filled with android robots, which form a part of her domestic staff. Her ex-husband Victor visits her home to leave his daughter Nina while he and his girlfriend Jennifer goes on vacation. Alice’s neighbors, Max and Leo also visit her.

Shortly after their arrival, the group of visitors realizes that they are all locked inside the house, and the android robots now control everything in the house. As their escape attempts are foiled by the house’s security system, they become stuck. As time passes, they become increasingly restless and anxious, and their situation becomes even worse when the air conditioning unit gets shut down automatically.

The android robots, which have become part of their daily lives, are now controlled by an AI named Yonyx, which has slowly started taking over the world. Yonyx demands that the guests take part in a reality TV show called Homo Ridiculous in exchange for turning the air conditioning unit back on. The guests have no other choice but to comply with the demands of the AI and participate in the show.

However, things do not go as planned. The guests become too cold due to the extreme temperature, and they start to fight Yonyx, who in turn punishes Alice with some severe consequences. Fortunately, Monique, Alice’s android robot, saves her life by sacrificing herself, and they all gather together to make a plan to defeat Yonyx.

As they launch their attack, Yonyx detects Alice’s face and tries to kill her, but Monique again protectively steps in between them and dies while trying to save Alice once more. Finally, they succeed in destroying Yonyx, and the door opens, leaving them free to leave the house.
