'The Returned' Season 1 finale 'La horde' first look: Adele is pregnant

18 December 2013 10:15 AM, PST | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

As "The Returned" heads into its Season 1 finale, there are still some big twists to be revealed.

One big surprise comes in the above clip of episode 8, "La horde," which is a Zap2it exclusive. Though the Horde is nowhere to be seen here, there is some pretty serious drama happening in the Simon-Adele storyline.

In the clip, Simon (Pierre Perrier) and Lucy (Ana Girardot) show up to take Chloe (Brune Martin) away, much to Adele's (Clotilde Hesme) horror. But that isn't the biggest surprise revealed here. It turns out that Adele is pregnant again with Simon's child, this time making it a zombie baby. Expect this to be a pretty big plot point going forward.

"The Returned" finale airs at 9 p.m. Et Thursday (Dec. 19). What have you thought of this season so far? »

World TV Markets Have Big Love for French Fare

1 November 2013 8:30 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It’s liftoff time. Powered by a crop of established producers, pay TV giant Canal Plus and a surge of international alliances, Gallic fiction production is slowly but surely taking off and landing in other countries — including the notoriously hard-to-penetrate U.S. market.

The past two years have been particularly fruitful for French drama exports, with a flurry of homegrown shows, including cop skeins “Braquo” and “Spiral” and supernatural series “The Returned,” getting snatched up in major territories and scoring high ratings.

Riding the wave, the French Consulate in Los Angeles and the Ile de France Film Commission have joined forces to bow Direct to Series, a Los Angeles-set showcase of French fiction drama. The Producers Guild and the Writers Guild are backing the event.

“In terms of the culture of moving images, America and France have always inspired each other,” says WGA veep Howard A. Rodman. “For the past 100 years, »

TV Review: Sundance Channel Continues Excellent Year with ‘The Returned’

31 October 2013 12:10 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – They have already made a statement in 2013 by broadcasting Jane Campion’s brilliant “Top of the Lake” and the riveting “Rectify” but Sundance Channel goes for the hat trick, starting tonight, as they debut the French supernatural hit “The Returned,” a brilliant twist on the undead genre that places the emphasis on mood, dread, and emotion instead of the unexpected.

The subtitled program can get a bit melodramatic but it’s more often mesmerizing in its effort to capture a small town in which the past seems to have been erased. It’s like “Broadchurch” meets “The Walking Dead,” but even that doesn’t capture the unique tone and subtle accomplishments of this gem.

Television Rating: 4.5/5.0

The Returned” opens with a bus crash. 38 students go over the edge of a mountain road. Four years later, one of them, a girl named Camille (Yara Pilartz), climbs out of the ravine »

TV Review: ‘The Returned’ (Les Revenants), ‘Zombie Night’ – More Dead People Walking

25 October 2013 7:15 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The dead are walking again, and not just on AMC. Qualitatively speaking, two polar opposites with zombie themes premiere in the next week: “The Returned,” a brainy, bizarre yet strangely hypnotic French drama based on the film “Les Revenants,” being shown with subtitles on Sundance Channel; and “Zombie Night,” a brain-dead exploitation pic from Syfy, more interesting for its auspices (more on that shortly) and cheeky casting than anything onscreen. If there’s one to watch it’s the former, reflecting some of the interesting TV work being done around the globe, and the willingness of programming-hungry niche networks to provide it a showcase.

To call “The Returned” a zombie story is actually something of a misnomer, since it’s really a tale of grief and loss — and a rumination on life and death — with a creepy undercurrent running through it. The show also tries to do a bit too much, »

Sundance Channel U..S. Nabs Hit French Supernatural Drama

10 September 2013 7:13 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Sundance Channel has acquired U.S. broadcast rights to critically-acclaimed French supernatural drama “The Returned.”

The U.S. channel will premiere the series on Halloween night. Chicago-based distributor Music Box has skedded a VOD and DVD/Blu-Ray roll-out in January.

Repped in international markets by Zodiak Rights, “The Returned” was commissioned and co-developed by French paybox for nearly five years before being greenlit.  France’s first fantasy series, “The Returned” was a gamble for the Gallic cabler but it proved a successful: It scored the highest ratings for a French-language skein. It also garnered healthy ratings on Channel 4 in the U.K..

A contempo twist of classic zombie skeins based on Robin Campillo’s “Les Revenants,” “The Returned” is set in a mysterious mountain town where a seemingly random collection of people attempt to regain their homes and reclaim their lives without realizing that they’ve been dead for years. »

Three Worlds | DVD Review

10 September 2013 6:30 AM, PDT | SmellsLikeScreenSpirit | See recent SmellsLikeScreenSpirit news »

Catherine Corsini's Three Worlds delicately studies the emotional aftermath of a hit-and-run accident, focusing on the driver, the victim's wife and the witness. An emotional whirlwind, the three primary characters experience human connections and disconnections, while wrestling with the psychological torments of fear, guilt, forgiveness and hatred. On the night of the accident, Al (Raphaël Personnaz) is out having a good time with his friends; but while not paying attention to the road, he severely injures a pedestrian. Fear takes hold of Al, so he flees from the scene of the crime. Immediately ravaged by guilt -- and relentlessly worried that he will eventually be apprehended -- Al can barely function in his new role as manager of a car dealership. A medical student, Juliette (Clotilde Hesme), is at the window of her flat at the time of the accident. She sees Al as he gets out of his »

Watch: 18-Minute Short Film 'Once Upon A Time...' Starring Keira Knightley & Directed By Karl Lagerfeld

8 May 2013 7:35 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

For the most part, short films and ads for fashion house tend to be pretty empty, boasting lots of flash and big stars, but little in the way of substance. But icon Karl Lagerfeld is hoping to turn that notion on its head with "Once Upon A Time...," an 18-minute complete short film, starring Keira Knightley (chosen by Lagerfeld to be the face of Coco Mademoiselle) and boasting an actual story, to go with some impressive production values. Co-starring Clotilde Hesme and model Brad Kroenig among others, the film finds Knightley playing Coco Chanel herself, in the beginning of her career as she's just beginning to make a name for herself. It's pretty whimsical stuff, in some nicely rendered black-and-white (solid set design too), aided by music from the opera "Tosca," and you're unlikely to see anything this year where hats feature so prominently. A cut above the usual, this »

Watch: Teaser Trailer For Karl Lagerfeld's Short Film 'Once Upon A Time...' Starring Keira Knightley

29 April 2013 12:56 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

We've already had two recent films about the life of one of France's greatest fashion icons  -- "Coco Before Chanel" as well as "Coco Chanel & Igor Stravinsky" -- but she's a figure that continues to fascinate, and now none other than Karl Lagerfeld will pay tribute, this time with the help of his 'muse' (one of many) Keira Knightley. The actress -- personally chosen by Lagerfeld to be the face of Coco Mademoiselle -- stars in "Once Upon A Time..." a new short film celebrating the 100th anniversary of the fashion house. Lagerfeld gets behind the camera for the film, which is shot in black-and-white and seems at first glance to owe a good deal to "The Artist." Not much in the way of dialogue, but that's made up for thanks to, as you might expect, some beautiful sets, costumes and music from the opera "Tosca." Clotilde Hesme and model »
