A seductive tale that opens a lingering past, Awakening from the Dead evokes Bergman's most engaging work.

Set against the outrageous background of the Belgrade bombings, we follow Miki, a former professor who arises out of his grave in one last desperate attempt to harness the tendrils of his life. With the clock of death pervasively ticking, Miki races to do more in death than he ever did in life; liberating those close to him from their illusions as well as himself from his own.

Taking a leaf out of Spielberg's Schindler's List, this potent treasure deftly employs stylistic verve which compliments the content of the film.
