With “The Dead Don’t Die,” cult director Jim Jarmusch delivers casual fun with the undead with an all-star cast. However, horror comedy is nothing for the younger audience – the FSK has already decided.
Few directors come to Cannes with a zombie comedy at the world’s most prestigious film festival: Jim Jarmusch, who directed such cult films as “Down By Law,” “Dead Man,” and “Coffee And Cigarettes,” is one of them. they. Aside from the fact that “The Dead Don’t Die” is not a movie for everyone, not all viewers have the opportunity to see the movie at the theater: The FSK has approved zombie comedy since the age of 16.
This age rating is not surprising. It’s not like blood and intestines are constantly flying around your ears, but here and there red life sap splatters onto the canvas when the undead go for food. When zombies are executed one after another, there is a lot of dust, but the zombie apocalypse never gets really nasty.
Aside from the degree of severity of the film, “The Dead Don’t Die” seems more like a movie that is aimed at a slightly older audience, for fans of the genre who are familiar with George A. Romero and patient viewers who are not a permanent success. Expect splashes and / or jokes. Anyone who can get involved in the complete absence of a classic beat can expect a truly rewarding cinematic experience with an all-star cast.
