WARM BODIES

 

Jonathan Levine   USA, 2013, 98 min; PG

FOUR STARS! The cause of the zombie apocalypse in this rom-zom-com is our addiction to technology. Nicholas Hoult combines lurching and drooling with an understated wit and concern that there might be more to life than eating people. Thus his strange urge to protect Teresa Palmer’s Julie instead of feasting on her cerebrum. A surprisingly universal tale. Warm is the right word. --Empire

Film "AMOUR" 2013-04-10 19:00:00
Description

 

AMOUR

Director: Michael Haneke  

France, 2012, 128 min; French with subtitles; PG

ACADEMY AWARD WINNER! BEST FOREIGN FILM

WINNER! PALME D’OR –Cannes Film Festival

A masterpiece from Michael Haneke (Caché) about the closing days of a great romance. The French legends Jean-Louis Trintignant and Emmanuelle Riva co-star as a couple in their 80s who have lived in love together for decades, but now their time together begins to end. Such a story is not melodrama. Nor is it tragedy. It is just about the way things are. A profound and uplifting masterpiece. FOUR STARS!  –Roger Ebert
