In a quieter register than his recent Nocturama, Bertrand Bonello’s eighth film is a bold re-examination of the zombie figure. The French filmmaker juxtaposes the tale of Clairvius Narcisse, a Haitian who came back from the dead in 1962, with the story of two young students who bond at a girls’ boarding school 55 years later. Through the double narrative, the director of Saint-Laurent reinterprets the zombie myth by layering on a provocative yet necessary historical aspect. A cerebral, confrontational approach to horror that will give you goosebumps. Just what you’d expect from Bonello!"Bertrand Bonello’s latest is contemporary French cinema at its most conceptually ambitious. Mixing political commentary, ethnography, teenage melodrama and genre horror, the film is an unashamedly cerebral study of multiple themes – colonialism, revolution, liberalism, racial difference and female desire - with its unconventional narrative structure taking us a journey that’s as intellectually demanding as it is compelling."
