COMEDY, HORROR / FRANCE/JAPAN / 2022 / 112MINS / MA15+
A standout opening night hit at Cannes Festival 2022, Oscar award-winning director Michel Hazanavicius (The Artist) delivers show-stopping comedy yet again, but be warned, this film isn't for the squeamish or faint-hearted. Those who push past the first 20 minutes of chaos and gore will welcome an outrageous epiphany, brought about by one totally brilliant, cutting-edge twist!
The film’s director, played by Romain Duris (Eiffel, AF FFF21) has a vision and is determined to bring his zombie-slasher to life. With a limited budget and an apathetic team of actors and crew, the project isn’t off to a great start – that is until an opportunity arises, to create a legendary zombie film in one, master cut. From behind the scenes there seems to be a real-life zombie disaster unfolding, could the crew actually be trapped under the thumb of a terrible curse?
A film within a film and a totally outlandish dissection of genres – Final Cut is propelled forward by a number of star-studded influences from Tarantino to Truffaut's clever cinematography in Day for Night. A film that inspires nothing short of excitement and wonder - Final Cut is a pure, witty delight and will have you laughing long after the credits roll.
It’s an entertaining piece of work - and a genuine oddity– The Guardian
