Alberto’s days are numbered. He has been dead for years but can no longer hide the fact. Perfume and make-up don’t help to mask his physical decline, so this silent zombie decides to withdraw from life. His manager Luly, however, takes an interest in him and an unusual friendship develops.
A hit on the festival circuit, playing Sundance and Rotterdam, this Cronenbergian body-horror film is not your average zombie flick. Scathing and gruesome, it is in essence a character study of the living dead, examining one alienated man’s physical existence.
