A firm finds a revolutionary solution to an age-old problem: how to resuscitate the dead? But soon after, a cosmic disaster takes place and it’s back to year zero. Eight months later, a mysterious man wanders around amidst what’s left of society, while the survivors try and organize as best they can.
Ex funeris by Walloon filmmaker Alexandre Drouet is not just a genre quickie. Rather than the umpteenth cheap zombie flick, this intelligently constructed film is a profound reflection on consumer society and the place of man in it. Thanks to Drouet’s lo-fi approach and no-nonsense black-and-white photography, his apocalyptic story ends up having more in common with The Road than with Mad Max or World War Z.
