With a concept going back not only to Shakespeare, but those who came before him, Jonathan Levine's sweet and melancholy Warm Bodies, tracks the relationship between two young people whose  unusual whose relationship suffers from boundaries created by society.

 

The concept of a zombie with a soul, and capable of not only human interaction, but love makes for an interesting premise, and with the requisite amount of suspension of disbelief, the film provides an interesting 98 minutes of entertainment value.

 

Photographed on that stuff called "film," in 35/3, and taken through to a 2k DI, Warm Bodies makes for a very good-looking Blu-ray package.  Add in one of my favored audio flavors -- 7.1 discreet -- and you've got a winner.

 

A huge tip of the hat to The NY Times' Manohla Dargis' for the title of her review.  "It'll Be a Mixed Marriage:  Just One of Them Is Alive"

 

A fun film, with an interesting take on relationships.

 

Recommended.

Just saw this recently and really liked it. A different take on zombie cinema and very refreshing.
It's gonna be a hell of a ride. I'm ready. .
