Awakening From the Dead Serbia 2004 | 136 min | OV | | FF 2006

rated for 0 + years
Not a zombie film but a film about the “buried generation” who was forced to waste their lives in the hail of bombs hitting them during the Balkan war. Forty-year-old Mickey, university lecturer and author, loses his life early on in the conflict. But he awakens from the dead to a 48 hours reprieve to get done what he hadn’t managed to do in life. A dark poetic antiwar manifesto.
