The Returned

Post  Flap Zappa on Wed Jul 31, 2013 9:34 pm

or to give it its proper title Les Revenants
I have been watching this program since it started and have been thoroughly enjoying it, at last something decent to come out of france. I saw the trailers for it and did not realise it was in french and when it first started did not think I would stick with it, but after a few minutes the french and the subtitles did not matter. Its a great story about the dead returning to a small village in the alps.
Not the usual zombie fare.
I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good thriller.

the music is also really good, by a band called Mogwai who I had never heard of but found out today that they are a scottish outfit.

If you haven't seen it then you can still catch it on 4OD for the next month and it is well worth it.

Yes I enjoyed this, the dialogue was quite spare so the subtitles were managable and even my second form French came back to me, so I managed a word here and there and even a sentence or two. Very different to the blood and gore fest of US films and series I'm looking forward to the second series.

it is very very good, and I usually hate watching stuff with subtitles.
Although a lot of my schoolboy french seems to have stuck lol!

I should say the first series ended on a real cliffhanger and I cant wait for the second series which will be aired next year
