Rammbock: Berlin Undead – Movie 28 of 365

Rammbock: Berlin Undead - Movie 28 of 365

Movie 28 is brought to you by the fact that I really didn’t have a long time to watch a film that day. Rammbock:Berlin Undead is short, one hour and one minutes long. But that’s okay because if it had been any longer it would’ve gotten boring. Mislabeled in some places as a zombie movie, it feels like one of those experimental short films on human emotions with biters.

As I said it’s mislabeled as a zombie movie. The “zombies” are somewhere between 28 Days Later rage monsters and citizens gone Cujo. People don’t come back from the dead and if you can stay calm and heavily sedated you can put off the onslaught of the virus. However that’s not the real plot of the movie. No this is mostly about Michael. Michael the heartbroken man who travels all the way to Berlin to return his now ex-girlfriend Gabi’s keys when he could’ve simply drop them in the mail.

And what does his trouble get him? Well she’s not home, the virus starts and he finds himself trapped in her apartment with Harper, the young plumber’s assistant. Which is good for Michael because he would’ve been dead many times if not for Harper.

As with most “zombie” movies it’s more about the people then monsters and this one is no different. We have other residents in the complex that our main characters communicate with through their open windows.

The problem with this movie is not a lot of movement. People are too far away from each other for most of the movie to really interact. There are great stretches of “art film” silence, and when the movie is only an hour it’s noticeable. Then there whiny Michael who needs to build a bridge and get over Gabi. The ending while a little sweet but not very climatic. I would’ve preferred the film to spent more time centered on Harper. At least he was brave, thinking, and interesting.

Oh yeah one other gripe. White subtitles on white background makes you miss the small amount of interesting dialogue there is.
