Directed by Fabrice Gobert and featuring an ensemble French cast, The Returned is the expertly plotted, critically acclaimed Channel 4 series that caught the UK’s imagination when it first aired on television earlier this year.

In a small Alpine village, in the shadow of a vast dam, a small group of men, women and children find themselves in a state of mystery and confusion, trying to return to their homes. What they do not yet know is that they have been dead for several years. This strikingly atmospheric thriller keeps the audience guessing as we see those returning from beyond the grave, determined to reclaim their places in the world of the living, and the living, who are thrown into a state of turmoil by the return of friends and relatives who don’t understand that time has moved on.  Their arrival coincides with a series of gruesome murders, which bear a chilling resemblance to the work of a serial killer from the past. This is a homecoming like no other.
