MAMI MFF Review: Ghost Town Anthology (2 Stars)
22 October 2019 | by nairtejasSee all my reviews

Ghost Town Anthology is a weird genreless French film where a town of just 215 dwellers somewhere near Quebec in interior Canada are haunted by living ghosts after an unfortunate accident that no one knows how happened. It is more about the idiosyncratic characters in the film that you get if you manage to endure the 90 minutes of confusing plot where the optimistic mayor is not afraid of whatever the village is about to experience and majority of the citizens are scrambling to find answers. From where or who they don't know. Much like what or why that I don't know or didn't get about Ghost Town Anthology, a film where I only dug the fine, haunting score. TN.

(Watched and reviewed at its India premiere at the 21st MAMI Mumbai Film Festival.)
