I'm looking for a movie I saw more than fifteen years ago. I vaguely remember the plot but I can't find it!
In this movie everyone has a microchip implanted that does everything for them: they don't need to count or to read, everything is done by the chip.
The protagonist, however, refuses to have the microchip implanted. There is a scene where he tells a female friend (?) that he liked a book he read but he is the only one who still needs to read books.
Anyway, at a certain point the microchip starts to make people go crazy, like it makes them do things their brain cannot do: it makes them count the number of their facial hair or something like this and people start to go crazy and die. So the protagonist and his female friend decide to stop the microchip (?).
The movie was in colour, but I don't remember any names. I saw it in Italian, but it was clearly dubbed. It probably was a movie from an English speaking country but I am not sure, I was maybe ten at the time.
It probably was filmed in the 90s or late 80s but I can't be sure. I vaguely remember a scene where the father of the protagonist (or the protagonist's friend) starts to count the hair on his body and he can't stop. He ends up overstimulating his brain and dies.
