 ALPHAVILLE STORY by Lady Bright   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-03)
Their number was not enough to produce a full-length album, but the boys were obsessed with the idea to show themselves to the world.
One of the most mysterious groups in the world was born (long before Enigma, let us say), though their first songs were simple and easy to understand.

Alphaville is Jean-Luc Godard's vision of a dystopian near-future, where everything is codified and catalogued, and logic is the dominant ideology.
Citizens are controlled by a super computer called Alpha 60 (the major influence on Kubrick's HAL 9000, and indeed, Alphaville invites comparison with 2001), and it is Alpha's efforts to make Eddie Constantine's outsider secret agent, Lemmy Caution, to conform that forms the basis of the narrative.
The gorgeous Anna Karina co-stars, as Natasha, a citizen of Alphaville, and the source of Lemmy Caution's faith in humanity.

A cockeyed fusion of science fiction, pulp characters, and surrealist poetry, Godard’s irreverent journey to the mysterious Alphaville remains one of the least conventional films of all time.

For Alphaville, I may be a bit off because it has been a while since I last watched this, but I think it was more of a 'distanced' film compared to the two you've mentioned you enjoyed.
