Les Revenants / The Returned

It's a bit soon for me to have an opinion yet, but it looks interesting enough that I'm recording it to watch later with DH...

Enjoying it but... how many adverts?

The kid is creepy. Silent creepy kid <shudder>

VivaLeBeaver Sun 09-Jun-13 21:52:38

Oh god.

LizTerrine Sun 09-Jun-13 21:52:42

I'm scared

<wibble>

Small scary boy? What?
Don't like the stabbing, just slightly freaked out.

VivaLeBeaver Sun 09-Jun-13 21:56:09

Why is the old bloke setting his house on fire and who is the woman he's tied up?

NishiNoUsagi Sun 09-Jun-13 21:56:29

That subway/tunnel bit was horrible sad

Creepy kid is adorable! But yes, creepy!

Why is the grandpa-ish man burning everything? And the lady?? Was trying to do work emails and keep up with the subtitles but I think I've lost it somewhere.. confused

I am really freaked out!!

Who got stabbed? I thought it was the older sister but now not sure, oh God i am not going to be able to sleep tonight now!

omg ads every 10 mins is ridiculous

Was just thinking how French women in this town are great at walking about at night with no fear of crime....

The stabbing was awful. Really chilling. Made my stomach turn!

How come the wife didn't notice her husband had aged 40 years?

AnneEyhtMeyer Sun 09-Jun-13 21:57:26

Murder was shocking.

Think the old bloke's wife came back from the dead and he couldn't cope so has burned the house with her in it.

LizTerrine Sun 09-Jun-13 21:57:37

She's his wife, right? But died a long time ago, while she was still young.

Alconleigh Sun 09-Jun-13 21:57:50

she's another returner I think. Daughter? Grand daughter?
I should NOT have watched this alone.

No explanation for old guy house burning. No idea who his visitor is. Poor Lena.

This is helpful (well something to do between the frequent ad breaks!)

LizTerrine Sun 09-Jun-13 21:58:43

Girlie, she worked in the bar, and Camille's dad was sleeping with her (paying her?)

Alconleigh Sun 09-Jun-13 21:58:54

Ah wife, missed that bit getting my pyjamas on sorry!
stabbing was awful.

VivaLeBeaver Sun 09-Jun-13 21:59:00

If its been four years I suppose maybe people haven't aged that much. Apart from Camilles older sister, ageing four years as a teen would be more noticeable.

girliefriend Sun 09-Jun-13 21:59:01

I am assuming Viva that is the old mans dead wife who has turned up and freaked him out!

CharlieUniformNovemberTango Sun 09-Jun-13 21:59:06

I think he thought she was some kind of devil maybe?

The girl who was stabbed was the barmaid girlie.

Seems to be lots of short adverts.

AmandinePoulain Sun 09-Jun-13 21:59:18

It must have been a while ago, they'd got a memorial planned.

I think the old man is freaked out - maybe he thinks she's the devil or something? Maybe she's his daughter? Was she the teacher?

My theory about the little boy is maybe he was a miscarriage and he's come back to his mum? He seems to young to have been on that school trip confused

directoroflegacy Sun 09-Jun-13 21:59:19

It must be only a few years- enough for people to move house & for the bereaved to plan a memorial but Camille didn't say anything re: people aging??

VivaLeBeaver Sun 09-Jun-13 22:00:05

It's seven years according to the ch four website.

LizTerrine Sun 09-Jun-13 22:00:52

It's not just people from the bus coming back. The little boy's dress is old fashioned. He could have been dead years.

directoroflegacy Sun 09-Jun-13 22:01:13

Yes I thought the same re: the little boy but he aged and not Camille??
