AKA: Aux Yeux des Vivants
Directed by: Alexandre Bustillo, Julien Maury
Starring: Francis Renaud (Papa), BĂ©atrice Dalle (Jeanne), Fabien Jegoudez (Klarence), Theo Fernandez (Viktor), Zacharie Chasseriaud (Tom), Damien Ferdel (Dan), Anne Marivin (Julia), Sidwell Weber (Louise), Nicolas Giraud (Nathan), Chloe Coulloud (Mila)
Country: France
Language: French (English Subtitles)

Plot – Spoilers:
A soldier has been exposed to a chemical that’s messed with his genes – not a comforting thought for his wife who’s heavily pregnant.

In another track, three friends who are often in trouble at school decide to explore Blackwoods, an abandoned studio. They find a gagged woman in the boot of a car and soon run into her captor.

Among the Living isn’t among Maury & Bustillo’s best, but there’s probably enough of their style and violence to satisfy fans.

    Thanks a ton admins! Always appreciated:)

    I’ve been desiring to see this film for a while now bc I’m a fan of this pair of directors previous works, Inside, and Livid (Livid was actually my favorite they did, and still is honestly, bc it was laden w homages to Argento, plus I’m a sucker for gothic fairy tales), and while this wasn’t quite up to their aforementioned previous films, it was still a good film nonetheless.

    Thought the violence seemed toned down a bit, till the cop got the blade to the face! Minus a point for not being taboo and not showing the kids getting killed, plus a point for being taboo and showing the antagonist was a hermaphrodite, lol.

    Overall a fun watch, and somewhat suspenseful, I’ll give it a 7/10. Can’t wait for this duo’s next films, Kandisha, followed by The Deep House, to release!

    Thank you EUM for this great thriller. I really enjoyed it. Great suspense and good acting throughout. Not a lot of gore but a lot of gore does not neccessarily make a great film. I rate it 8/ 10.

    A prudent film, the substantial montage of idealogues was congenial. Dalle was gratifying in this, akin and indelible to her performance in INSIDE.
    Exquisitely orchestrated <3
