All the world has been overrun by zombies, all the world but German cities Weimar and Jena - and while Weimar has been turned into a militaristic fort that's mostly a zombie-killing machine, Jena seems to be a bit of a promised land, where scientists still try to find a cure for the zombie virus. So one day, Vivi (Gro Swantje Kohlof) and Eva (Maja Lehrer), two young women disgusted by how things are run in Weimar, stow away on an automatic freight train headed for Jena. But the train gets stuck about halfway there, and the relief team is butchered by zombies, so suddenly the two girls find themselves reliant on each other to make it through to Jena on foot - and soon realize how little they have in common: While Eva, disillusioned by what she has seen since the zombie outbreak, has become tough as nails, Vivi just can't get over abandoning her little sister (Amy Schuk) and saving her own life during a zombie attack - and now she has frequent hallucinations of her sister leading a zombie army coming after her. It sure takes its time for the two women to get used to one another, but once they are, they have each other's back - when it becomes apparent they have to split because Eva has been injured by a zombie, and it might only be a matter of hours until she turns ...

 

Now a very welcome feminist touch aside, Ever After has very little that would distinguish it from any number of zombie movies on the narrative side of things, and the film doesn't hit especially high marks on characters or dialogue - and yet, all the same the film feels like a dark fairy tale come to life, thanks to a very lyrical direction and almost dreamlike camerawork, both of which are a far cry to the grungy, often grindhouse style aesthetics usually identified with the genre. And of course the film's also helped by its rather beautiful Black Forest locations, while both Gro Swantje Kohlof and Maja Lehrer get the most out of their characters to make them totally relatable. So however old the film might feel storywise, its look and feel make it perfectly watchable and even a bit unique.
