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 , Jörg 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 the nature of life and death.
