Anna: Season One
December 31, 2021 1:37 PM - Season 1 (Full Season) - Subscribe

In the near future, a pandemic kills everyone at/above the age of puberty. 13 year-old Anna has kept her half-brother Astor alive and hidden in their country home. Eventually, their bubble of isolation is ruptured, and soon Anna will have to pursue Astor into the darkest corners of the changed world, where a lack of structure and nurturing has left the remaining kids miserably lonely or utterly feral, some of them in thrall to older, more manipulative kids.

Niccolò Amaniti adapts his own 2015 post-apocalyptic novel in this Italian series.

Currently streaming in the US on AMC+.

Heads up: while this has a bit of a magical realism bent to it, it is far closer in tone to something bleak like The Road than it is, say, Sweet Tooth. It is about kids but it is not for kids.

That said, this is fucking stunning.

Note: I've only seen the first half and I reserve the right to hate the ending. But so far... Wow.

Holy shit, this was amazing. Five out of five stars. Gorgeous visuals, a very rich and multifaceted exploration of grief, loss, and the power of stories.

The very best thing I saw in 2021.

Just under the wire! It was almost the best thing you watched in 2022.
