Synopsis:

A man and his family escape from a hospital, where they had been quarantined by the army under the pretext of a viral epidemic, to go searching in the sewers for a missing daughter who was thought to be dead but is revealed to be still alive but trapped in an unknown location.


Note: this movie won many prizes when it came out, all of them well deserved, IMHO.

I found this movie very clever, and surprisingly well made and enjoyable.

If you haven't seen it yet, you owe it to yourself to check it out.

More clues to come, if necessary.

Yet another clue:

To control an impending menace, the army declares that it will be deploying "Agent Yellow" near the river. This announcement triggers a series of riots.

Nice! Wasn't 100% sure since it has been many years since I saw it. Wasn't a big fan to be honest.

Anyway...

A rock band goes on tour to promote their latest album in hope to revive the group's success. A success that is plagued by bad album reviews and numerous line-up changes (mostly drummers).

No guesses? I thought it was pretty easy!

Burnout's friend's significant other finds out what he's doing and outs him. Burnout's friend still remains his friend. Burnout and his friend go into business together. Fate of girlfriend still unknown.

The film is connected to the previous one. The family is ironic because the father hates rock music, yet is played by a well-known rock musician.
