Hong Kong. Una donna muore per una strana epidemia che sembra trasmettersi per solo contatto: ha inizio l'incubo di un virus di cui non si conosce nè l'inizio nè la fine. Beth Emohff (Gwyneth Paltrow) è una moglie in viaggio a Tokio dove, per lavoro, partecipa alla cerimonia di inaugurazione di un casinò. E' tra le luci e i colori dell'azzardo che la donna accusa i primi sintomi del virus contratto, diventando "paziente 0" e prima...

It came, it saw, and it smashed the box office. The team-up of the Marvel-owned superheroes that have not yet been derailed by other film companies certainly left an impact on this summer. And they stand tall, these modern heroes, or rather gods. For in a subtle, yet unambigious way, The Avengers leans heavily on the myth of Ragnarok, the Twilight of the Gods.

Ci voleva un regista come Pedro Almodóvar per un film come La pelle che abito. E non perché trama e sceneggiatura siano nelle sue corde, ma proprio perché queste si distanziano anni luce dalla sua filmografia. Presentato al Festival di Cannes (2011), ha incantato pubblico e addetti ai lavori proprio per la diversità rispetto alle commedie a cui il regista spagnolo ci aveva abituato.

A vampire film by the director of Old Boy, Chan-wook Park, sounds indeed like a bloody mess. That it is – well, bloody.
