So perhaps a French zombie movie was not the best choice for a movie the other night. In They Came Back, the French zombie movie, my wife and I watched the other night millions of people who had died came back to life. But unlike most zombie movies they did not attack people, instead they walked around and talked a little but were in a low functioning state. Most who came back were older than 65. The movie spent most of the time dealing with the emotional side along with the civic government side of how to take care of the zombies. The film showed the large burden that would be placed on a society to suddenly add millions at a national level or thousands a local level of new residents who were unlikely to work. Although it was really a slow movie so I can not recommend it.
