    ★★★½

    Funny and dark comedy with zombies. Tons of great jokes and directed with vigor and panache, switching between an over the top self-serious tone, a heartfelt character drama and a black comedy with ease. First half is better than the second half, mostly because Forsyth doesn't get enough out of the containment of its characters , but it's still a lot of fun and with a great ending.

    Jesus Christ. Holy shit. What the fuck.

    Four minutes into this, I had already decided that I would give this film five stars. It's that good. The rest of it did not disappoint, but fucking hell. Goddamn it.

    Piano music will never be the same.

    About 30 minutes into this, I broke. Completely. And pretty much stayed in that state for the rest of the film.

    A quiet, intense, honest, bitter and utterly heartbreaking look at love. Possibly the best movie I've seen in a long, long time. There are so many great things about it, so much that I loved. So many clever uses, fantastic performances, fantastic scenes.... I can't praise this movie enough. It's fantastic that even in our times, there are people capable of telling stories about love that actually feel fresh.

    I loved it.
