Les Revenants

ImageGot round to watching the first two episodes of The Returned (Les Revenants) being shown with way too many advert breaks on Channel 4 (zip zip fast forward) in the UK. So far so very mesmerising. A kind of modern French Twin Peaks with music by Mogwai. Beautifully filmed and truly wonderful how much you fill in the plot yourself without explicitly being told what’s possibly going on in mere words. Now that’s a classy combination of script,direction and the art of film making.

The official website is very stylised too.In French obviously and sadly massively flash based (bites edge of table to the point of leaving teeth marks). In my world of very cherry picked telly watching I’m heartily recommending this one. Would dearly love to see the original 2004 French film this series is an adaptation of.
