A contemplative off-beat drama taking a very original look at how society copes with death.
| Original Score: 4/5
Occupying a crepuscular space between life and death, wakefulness and sleep, arthouse and genre, Campillo's astonishing debut is as unnervingly oneiric as it is oddly moving.
[Director Robin Campillo's] camera seems to deliberately circle around death, examining it from every angle.
| Original Score: B
Leave it to the French to take all the fun out of a Zombie flick, overly intellectualizing even the most base of cinema forms.
| Original Score: C-
It's an original in a genre done to death (pun intended).
| Original Score: B-
...this film's engagingly original premise allows for some probing social exploration but ultimately fails to draw any real conclusions.
a kind of aborted film that's mostly about how paranoid people are, and not the mind-f*** that it really ought to have been
| Original Score: 3/5
A triumph of internal horror.
| Original Score: 3/4
A creative and intelligent recycling of the dead returning for non-horror purposes, but it runs into pacing problems toward the middle.
| Original Score: 6/10
