A Romantic, Bizarre and Meditative look at Dead Lovers
26 February 2020 | by roger-99-171599See all my reviews

A young man's ghost wanders through the city meeting up other dead folks and helping them get thru the process of understanding and adapting to their condition. A longtime lover is able to see (and feel) him, developing an eccentric, romantically surreal relationship, as he tries to recall his past feelings. Stéphane Batut's seductive and enigmatic feature debut is a captivating look at how we're easily able to forgive and forget, let go and re-adapt while dealing with the inevitable cycle of life.
