I saw this at a festival. Not knowing what to expect other than a zombie film with a romance film title, I was pleasantly surprised. The film shows the characters and their emotions during a zombie outbreak. You really feel for the characters. The subplots and character development make you cry with them.
I thought the dialog and use of emotion in what is normally a zombie driven genre made this film unusual. Kind of like the first season of The Walking Dead, you follow the group members, not the chaos which is secondary. You don't know whether to root for the pacifist or the zombie hunter. I would have liked to see some more zombie slaughtering, but I see the direction the director took, focusing on the individuals more than the situation and think it paid off. It was well directed and written, although some of the scenes were shot a little dark.
Overall, it is an enjoyable character driven zombie film. If you are looking for heads exploding this isn't the film, but if you are looking for well thought characters and character development, this is the film.
