Les Revenants (Rebound)

TV-Series | FR 2012 | 52'

Sometimes they are coming back: In a small French mountain village dead community member reappear – without any explanation, even without memory of their deaths, but fully alive. A teenager daughter returns to her family home four years after her fatal bus accident; an old lady returns to her husband who is rather shaken to see her 30 years after her death; a young suicide victim is searching for the fiancée he left behind ten years ago; a nameless boy appears who does not speak a word; and a dead serial killer is loose again, too. And while the community struggles with the shocking task of reintegrating their former members, mysterious power outages and natural phenomena abound. Serializing the French film of the same name makes for a thoroughly original genre mixture of mystery, family drama and thriller that hasn’t been seen in this intensity and beauty. Hypnotic images and the psychedelic music of the cult band Mogwai as well as the superb actors make this the perfect anti-zombie series – subtle, deep and insidiously entertaining.
