EIFF 2019: Ever After (2018) dir: Carolina Hellsgård

Despite having its share of gruesome moments, this German take on the zombie apocalypse subgenre comes closer in tone to Andrei Tarkovsky than to George Romero. It's a beautiful, haunting and poetic examination of guilt and the inherent value of human life.
