You could swear that this is yet another iteration of the Japanese low-budget comico-gore zombie movie, but fortunately, it's more than that *. The galloping buzz, from its success in Japan to our festivals, is not without reason: One cut of the dead is a nice surprise.
The first half hour finished, that is to say the mowed short film typical of the attack of zombies in a dilapidated factory, if not carried out in only one plan of 30 minutes and disturbed by "real" zombies the assault on the filming team, we witness helplessly at the end credits which leaves quite dubious ... "er, is that the super original thing? ..." But we can see that there remains a hour and that the expected base is already finished. "But then, what are they going to say? ...". The story then starts a month before the shooting, better filmed and with plans edited this time, and offers to follow the team and what motivated them until the shooting itself. First reaction, mmmouais.
However, from then on, One cut of the dead takes a comic turn and an unexpected relief, quite remarkable, of an invigorating innocence under its visibly reflected design, from where escapes a freshness and a certain revival which is very pleasant. with jaded lungs.
The three-layer film, if we include the final credits, is the demonstration of so many new levels of understanding of its images. Things happen that are hard to imagine during this first half hour in fact. Things only understandable with another camera which gives a broader and therefore more precise vision of the situation and the characters. Young star actor jaded, Pop Idol typically choubidou, director turned on and his wife, former actress ... invested, pickup sound pickup and zombie in hilarious glasses mix to reveal a film much more fulfilled than it seemed Getting there could not be better to transmit the passion that can inhabit this kind of reduced film crew, who fear nothing.
