The film starring Christoph Waltz, with Matt Damon, Tilda Swinton, Lucas Hedges, Mélanie Thierry, David Thewlis, Ben Whishaw and more co-star/cameo.
Qohen Leth (Waltz) is an eccentric and reclusive computer genius who lives in an Orwellian corporate world and suffers from existential angst. Under the instruction of a shadowy figure known only as “Management” (Damon), Qohen works to solve the “Zero Theorem” – a mathematical formula which will finally determine whether life has any meaning. Qohen’s work in the burnt-out chapel that serves as his home is interrupted by visits from Bainsley (Thierry), a seductive woman, and Bob (Hedges), the teenage son of Management.
