‘Ever After’ starring Gro Swantje Kohlhof
Two years after a viral zombie epidemic has left only two German cities uninfected, 22-year-old Vivi and 26-year-old Eva flee the brutal existence in Weimar and hop an automated train for the other supposed safe haven, Jena.
Unfortunately, the train unexpectedly stops mid-trip, leaving Vivi and Eva to reluctantly forge a bond as they make their way across a beautiful but zombified countryside in Thuringia (“the green heart of Germany”), towards the city and salvation at the other end of the line.
It depicts the friendship of two young women, who are forced to emancipate themselves in order to survive. In the end, a kind of love arises, not only to each other but to the fantastic nature surrounding them.
Directed by Carolina Hellsgård, Ever After stars Gro Swantje Kohlhof, Maja Lehrer, and Trine Dyrholm.
