How did series 1 of The Returned end? Read our handy refresher

16 October 2015 10:30 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Warning: This article contains spoilers that some readers may prefer to avoid.

Good news - The Returned is back, with its beautiful people, Gallic drama and Mogwai chords. Bad news - the first series aired in 2013 and, two years on, all we can remember is "the Lake Pub".

Great news - Digital Spy has prepared a handy guide, for anyone looking to refresh their memories ahead of tonight's (superb) series two premiere:

The basics

The dead have begun returning to life in a small French mountain town. But these are no flesh-chomping zombies - beyond a ferocious appetite, the 'Returned' appear perfectly healthy and normal.

The town, though, is plagued by other strange phenomena - power outages, the reservoir's water level dropping dramatically and strange marks appearing on the bodies of both the living and dead.

What happened in series one's finale?

Remember Toni (Grégory Gadebois), manager of the Lake Pub? »

The Returned series 2: the delay, Us remake, and answers

The Returned series 2 arrives on More4 in the UK tonight, Friday the 16th of October. We spoke to its creators and cast…

Fabrice Gobert, the French creator of supernatural drama The Returned, speaks good English. An inevitability of using a second language though, is the odd grammatical slip. One such slip made by Gobert at the press launch for The Returned series two is too perfect to let pass by. A pitfall of writing fantasy TV, Gobert said, is that “you can lost yourself”.

Add a capital letter to the ‘l’ word, and you can say that again.

During its enviably long run, Lost became both the high and low benchmark for atmospheric, existentially fraught TV dramas. Its early seasons gripped viewers, but its later runs frustrated many by failing to achieve the perfect ratio of mysteries to answers. That’s the tricky challenge The Returned is facing in series two. »

Viff’15: ‘The Last Hammer Blow’

6 October 2015 10:04 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Last Hammer Blow

Written by Alix Delaporte, Alain Le Henry

Directed by Alix Delaporte

France 2015

There are both too many stories of depression laced lives and too many happily ever afters. Too few allow the tragedy life to run its course while acknowledging the undercurrent of joy and at times fleeting happiness that bubbles up from below. The Last Hammer Blow begins as another simple, dour look at the struggles of 13 year old Victor (Romain Paul in a star making performance) and his cancer stricken mother Nadia (Clotilde Hesme), as they struggle to survive in a trailer by a remote beach. Having never met his father, and with a mother who needs more care than she can give, Victor has about as much weight on his shoulders as Atlas did, which he accepts with an emotionless grimace, letting fate determine his place in life.

The Returned series 2 is moving from Channel 4 to More4

28 September 2015 9:10 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

The Returned will finally be back on our screens this autumn - but the spooky French thriller is shifting channels.

The unorthodox zombie series is moving from Channel 4 to More4 for its second series.

It's been two years since The Returned gripped the nation with its tale of deceased French folk coming back from the dead.

Set six months on from the events of the first series, series two will see Adele (Clotilde Hesme) about to give birth to Simon's (Pierre Perrier) child.

Meanwhile Lena (Jenna Thiam) and her father Jerome (Frederic Pierrot) search desperately for Claire (Anne Consigny) and Camille (Yara Pilartz).

Matters are complicated further when a stranger named Berg (Laurent Lucas) - who knows more than he claims - arrives into town. Worse still, a new wave of resurrections could be about to occur.

Channel 4 is yet to confirm when new episodes will air on »

First teaser for ‘Les Revenants’ Season 2 favours atmosphere over dialogue

20 August 2015 12:06 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The French resurrection drama Les Revenants, also known as The Returned, is set to return for a second season later this year.

The show’s second season will pick up six months after the end of the first season and will also consist of eight episodes, like the show’s first season.

This marks the series’ return after three years off the air, due to writing delays that pushed back shooting, as »

Film Review: ‘The Last Hammer Blow’

18 March 2015 3:59 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Classical music fans have learned to anticipate the infamous hammer blows that fall at the end of Gustav Mahler’s Sixth Symphony, waiting with bated breath for the percussionist, who stands with giant mallet raised, to deliver the tragic strokes of fate: one, two and (if the orchestra is so inclined) a third and final crippling boom to smite whatever hope remained. The bastard son of a celebrated symphony conductor, 13-year-old Victor knows nothing about classical music at the outset of Alix Delaporte’s “The Last Hammer Blow,” but fate has already been plenty cruel in his short time on earth. Art-film aficionados may assume they can tell where the narrative is headed in this modest French drama, and yet the curiously noncommercial film defiantly resists sentimentality while teasing whether tragedy will strike again as the headstrong teen attempts to reconnect with his estranged father.

Michel Gomez: ‘In a Very Tense Environment, Paris Hosted Major Domestic and Foreign Shoots in 2014′

28 January 2015 10:30 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Paris Film Office was set up in 2002 as part of the Mission Cinema project launched the same year. Both are integrated within the city council, the Mairie de Paris. Their goal is to provide a one-stop shop for French and foreign professionals that will handle all logistical aspects required for shooting in the French capital — which is not only one of the world’s most highly filmed cities but also one of the busiest, meaning that shooting there requires careful preparation. Two permits are required for filming in Paris: one issued by the Paris Film Office and one by the Préfecture de Police, the city’s police authority.

Since its launch, the Paris Film Office has inked agreements to improve filming conditions in the capital and set up a bilingual website to help French and international productions to prepare shoots. The site provides images of key locations and information »

Emilie Cherpitel on ‘Eva & Leon,’ A ‘Mother-Meets-Son’ Movie

15 January 2015 9:57 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The art decoration of “Eva & Leon” is sublime, its impact immediate in the measured static shots of Eva’s chic and huge arrondissement Paris flat, classical in the carefully contrasting tones of white, gray, blue and salmon, setting off of furniture, curtains, drapes, sofas, cushions, gray and walls, high ceilings. A life-size flamingo stands by the mantelpiece. But such luxury is not enough. Eva, 35 (Clotilde Hesme), svelte, a dandy, an flaneur, cultured, immature, no children, absent mother, recluse father, termigant sis, lives a privileged life few can dream of, at least  seriously. But, as the film suggests, she needs Leon, 10, an orphan who has escaped from his reception miles away outside France to try to find his birth-mother, to give her life an emotional anchor. Emilie Cherpitel’s film portrays their growing relationship of an odd couple. Distributed in France and sold abroad by Pyramide, one of Europe’s top arthouse production-distribution-sales companies, »

Top 100 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2015: #73. Catherine Corsini’s La belle saison

6 January 2015 7:45 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

La belle saison

Director: Catherine Corsini // Writers: Catherine Corsini, Laurette Polmanss

French director Catherine Corsini isn’t very well known in the Us, though many should be familiar with her 2009 title Leaving, which headlined Kristin Scott Thomas. She’s premiered at Cannes on four occasions, last in 2012 in Un Certain Regard with Three Worlds (which happens to be one of her weaker efforts—Corsini played in the Main Comp in 2001 with La Repetition). Her latest, La belle saison (The Beautiful Summer), is set in 1971, and concerns the budding relationship between two women from very different walks of life, something which throws both their lives into turmoil (which sounds an awful lot like post-war Diane Kurys material). Corsini (who often features striking actresses in her work, including Catherine Frot, Scott Thomas, and Clotilde Hesme) snags Cecile de France as one part of this duo, not to mention the always engaging Noemie Lvovsky. »
