CANNES 2019: ZOMBI CHILD BY BERTRAND BONELLO
By Mónica Delgado
Zombie Child by Bertrand Bonello is a film made of cinema. Meaning, it’s soaked with a fantastic cinematographic legacy of over half a century, and, like the character in his film, rebuilds itself and brings it back to life in the middle of this Cannes film festival, through a tale that derives in a symbolic manifesto that looks to heal the barbarism of French colonization in Haiti. And Bonello doesn’t leave his guard down, quite the contrary; he has made the first great film I’ve seen in these past days. A must-see, which requires more than one viewing.
