I would like to present an american film produced in 2013 and directed by Jonathan Levine called Warm bodies. This film is post apocalytpic, summoning all the features of that type of film such as zombies, monsters and army forces, fighting against a dark virus spreading across the world and poisoning humanity.
The film starts with a peculiar point of view : a zombie named « R » explains his life on earth with his congeners in an airport, how they communicate and « feel » (which doesn’t happen apart from when they are hungry) I love this part because we have a comic side of their slow and clumsy behaviour. There are another kind of zombie in their surroundings : the bonies. They have no skin or flesh, and above all no emtions, only empty husks. The bonies patrol in case of a heart pounding creature appeared…
He is going to meet a human girl called Julie, and together will bond a new relationship. R has saved her life during a zombie hunt, and she is trapped with R for days in the airport. Zombies are well-known for their cruelty and their blood-thirsty reputation. they don’t have emotions, but in this film we are going to assist at a discovery that will give hope to the new best friends : R felt his heart beat again, and amazingly falls in love. Humans have built a wall of protection while preparing to exterminate the zombies on the other side, which Julie and R are will lead a fight in order to bring the wall down.
This film is quite original, in the middle of dramatic events and the serious atmposphere, the comic side gives a touch of lightness. I recommend you to watch tthis film because it has a message to give, despite the ever-lasting zombies!
