The Night Eats the World
First-time director Dominique Rocher may have given birth to the first minimalist art-house zombie movie with this adaptation of Pit Agarmen’s novel. Franco-Norwegian musician Sam, played by the melancholy Anders Danielsen Lie (Oslo, August 31st), stops by his ex’s pad to pick up his stuff. But a wild party is raging, so he locks himself in the back room and promptly gets drunk as a skunk… only to awaken the next morning and find that everyone in Paris is dead and zombies are roaming the streets below. Petrified, Sam must figure out how to survive.
