Malevil

Vaguely reminiscent in mood of Polanski's Cul-de-Sac, this is a weird - but not weird enough - post-nuclear survival drama, with assorted members of a strong cast gathering at the eponymous castle and trying to keep civilisation going. After a decent start, the movie soon drifts into the usual set of dramatic options: illness, reproduction, farming, and of course the fascists in the forest. (From a novel by Robert Merle.) ATu.
