The world has been overrun by zombies - but Ellen (Sarah Cunningham) has saved herself onto a rooftop, and even if there is a ladder to the rooftop, the zombies are just too simple-minded to climb it, so she's safe - but lacking in food, drink and company, so she already conteplates just jumping off her roof and let cruel fate take care of the rest ... which is when Cillian (Robert Nolan), another survivor enters her life and roof, only having made it up there thanks to her assistance.

However, the two of them are not fully compatible, as Cillian has all sorts of problems, from practical ones - he's almost starved and at one point tries to take a bite of Ellen's leg for food - to more emotional ones - he has lost his wife Ellie (Kelly-Marie Murtha), and now he tries to find a new Ellie in Ellen.

Now what's troubling about the whole Ellie-story: She was suffering from terminal cancer, but Cillian was brilliant enough a scientist to find a cure for her kind of cancer, and he cured her - the problem, his cure was as of yet untested, and ... well, the experiment went awkward in a totally unexpected way.

The various inconsistencies in Cillian's character as well as things he mentioned in his story should probably worry Ellen more than they do - but then, there's something weird about Ellen, as well ...

 

Canswer is very probably one of the most unusual zombie films out there: In fact, it's not about zombies at all but about very human themes like loneliness, abandonement, desparation and the like - but all set to the tone of howling zombies (as some sort of unseen threat) in the background. And leads Sarah Cunningham and Robert Nolan carry the movie just beautifully, even when the story turns quite absurd (but intentionally so) for a bit. And add to this very fluid camerawork and an atmospheric directorial effort that makes the most out of very little (two people on a rooftop), and you've got yourself a rather impressive movie!
