Movie Info

In a Monty Python skit, Graham Chapman once donned the attire of a Swiss maiden and went about selling honey in Britain door-to-door. When asked by John Cleese whether his job wasn't a miserable, unprofitable one, Chapman answered "It is, but I'd do anything to stay out of Iceland." The country of Finland is similarly wintery and bleak, and the young man in this movie, aptly named Zombie, would like to do anything to get free of his life. Unfortunately, he hasn't sufficient zest for life even to pull off committing suicide properly. This movie was billed as a tragicomedy in Finland, but non-Finnish reviewers found it to be singularly unfunny (perhaps they never thought of the Python skit). Zombie is part of a rock n' roll group which is touring through the European continent, and he finds some surcease from the grayness of the Finnish winter with his road manager in what might seem (to the rest of us) to be a depressingly gray region of Turkey.

Critic Reviews for Zombie and the Ghost Train

All Critics (3) | Fresh (3)

  • while it has its share of comic observations and poetic flourishes, it is a relentlessly downbeat tale of alienation, dipsomania and nihilistic ruin.
