Movie Review by Movie Addict
June 20th, 2009

Favorite Movie Quote: "The most beautiful living woman I have ever seen..."

Fans of Shaun of the Dead will enjoy this quirky film starring Rupert Everett as a cemetery manager with a secret. It seems that, for reasons unknown the dead rise after seven days, and he has to put them back under permanently.

He is assisted by François Hadji-Lazaro, who seems to be oblivious to the danger about. When a group of Boy Scouts and a nun attacked, he went on watching the telly, and only moved when Dellamorte (Everett) mistakenly shot it thinking it another zombie. Of course, he can't wait for his beloved Valentina (Fabiana Formica) to arise in a week.

Dellamorte becomes obsessed with Anna Falchi, who plays three roles. Who wouldn't? She is a well-kept secret to the States. I can only find one other film with her and it isn't released until next month. Even after she is killed, she comes back. What he goes through for her in her second incarnation is hilarious.

It gets a little weird when he becomes a serial killer as he philosophizes on life and death.

Beautiful scenes, and some glorious shots of Falchi. Amusing and intelligent.
