Les Revenants (Rebound), Season 1, 2012

I’m obsessed with this French tv show. This is not something that should be happening (except Engrenages/Spiral - it’s on Netflix and BBC 4 so watch it -I don’t find French drama interesting/compelling/appealling, I know there are 2-3 others worth watching these days but I missed them or it’s comedy and you know my problem with comedy). It’s really beautiful, Scotish band Mogwai did the soundtrack (try this one) and there are some really great performances. And the story is pretty good.

The dead have returned. But this is a homecoming like no other.

In a small Alpine village in the shadow of a vast dam, a crowd of men and women find themselves in a state of confusion, trying to return to their homes. What they do not yet know is that they have been dead for several years, and no one is expecting them back.

Those returning from beyond the grave are determined to reclaim their places in the world of the living. The living are thrown into a state of turmoil by the return of friends and relatives who don’t understand that time has moved on.

It’s close to The 4400 (but no aliens), it’s described as a mix of Twin Peaks, LOST and Six Feet Under and the anti Walking Dead.

    The opening of Les Revenants reminds me a little of Top of the Lake. I’m only 3 episodes in but would recommend this...
