Directed by Michel Hazanavicius
The opening night selection of last year’s Cannes Film Festival was this wacky horror comedy, a remake of Shin’ichirô Ueda’s cult hit One Cut of the Dead. It follows a director (Romain Duris, L’Auberge Espagnole) making a live, single-take, low-budget zombie flick in which the cast and crew, one by one, actually turn into zombies. Oscar® winner Michel Hazanavicius (The Artist) milks the film’s hilarious and meta-to-the-max premise for all it’s worth, while also crafting a sly love letter to the art of filmmaking. What’s on screen unfolds in typical cheesy B-movie fashion, while the off-screen hijinks offer a celebration of the unpredictable and collaborative nature of film sets. Featuring a hysterically unhinged turn by Oscar® nominee Berenice Bejo (The Artist) and serving up blood-soaked high farce par excellence, Final Cut revels in its affectionate embrace of goofy genre fun.

“Uses the coarse language of B-movies to make one re-appreciate the magic of cinema.”
''Clever and giddily entertaining… A gory pleasure.''
“Delightfully silly… a salute to cinema so goofy and goodhearted that it is hard to resist.’’
“An entertaining piece of work… [that] may yet have found a way to breathe new life into the zombie genre itself.”
