THE RETURN OF THE LOVING DEAD
Monika isn't like other young women. She shares her small flat with Rob, a recently disinterred corpse which serves as the object of her affections. But then she meets good-natured Mark, and soon finds herself torn between the prospect of a 'normal' life with a living, breathing partner and her overwhelming desire for her rotting bed-fellow.
Once prosecuted in its native Germany for "glorifying violence", Jorg Buttgereit's follow-up to his ground-breaking Nekromantik is just as shocking as its reputation would suggest. But it's also a profoundly moving (if decidedly twisted) love story, and a thought-provoking meditation on death - that most mysterious aspect of the human condition.
