The movie Don’t Kill Me, which was originally called Non mi uccidere, was directed by Andrea Di Sica and is based on a novel by Chiara Palazzolo. Don’t Kill Me begins as a zombie horror film before transitioning into a love story. It happens frequently that you are unable to comprehend the inspiration for a particular scene and search for others to agree with you in order to determine whether you are the only one who feels that the sometimes bizarre state of circumstances lacks sagacity. The movie makes several very significant claims that have the power to alter the course of events, yet it does not support these claims with logic or offer any form of explanation that may persuade viewers to accept them even for a split second. Although I am well aware that it is a work of fiction, the clarity, depth, and forcefulness of the supporting arguments give the story a hint of reality that encourages viewers to become involved in the fictional setting.
So let’s examine the storyline and the conclusion to Don’t Kill Me in more detail.
Because Robin would almost certainly be in jail for molesting if Mirta Fossati hadn’t fallen in love with him right away. Mirta initially noticed Robin when he passed her along with his gang of drug users. The two then encounter each other at a seedy rave party, when Robin simply pulls Mirta up and begins making advances towards her sexually without saying a word. I thought Mirta would reply to him appropriately, but I think I was mistaken. He ended up spending intimate moments with Mirta, who had already fallen for him. This was the beginning of an affair that would eventually flip Mirta’s life upside down.
Don’t Kill Me jumps around a lot, and it begins with a scenario where Robin is getting a buzz from driving his automobile while Mirta is giving him directions while keeping his eyes closed. Mirta thought Robin was pushing it a bit, but he wasn’t in the mood to listen. They came to a stop near what the children called the Moon Quarry. Robin is urged by Mirta to kick his drug habit. Robin explains to her that he cannot leave it so easy since if he asked her to start taking it, she would refuse. Mirta seizes the chance and informs Robin that she would accept it as long as he leaves after that single instance. The recreational substance, which comes in the form of eye drops, is used by Mirta. We assume that the drug would have killed Mirta and Robin because we cut to a scene where Mirta’s parents are standing in front of their bodies.
Unexpected events led to a change in the course of events. Mirta rises from the dead but has no idea what happened to her. Her mother sees her when she visits her parents’ home. She leaves the house before her father awakens, making her mother appear insane because he would never believe that his daughter would come back from the grave. She manages to hide in the forest while an unidentified group of people comes looking for her. Who were those individuals? Why did they seek Mirta out? How did Mirta resurrect herself? Why did Robin not? These are queries that are addressed as the story is revealed, revealing the peculiarity of the tale.

Don t Kill Me Ending Explained
After some time, Mirta realised two things: first, that the mysterious organisation was out to hurt her for an unknown cause; and second, that she was experiencing a strong want to consume human blood. Her body was experiencing an odd occurrence as black clots started to develop all over it. The leader of the unidentified gang visits Piero Fossati, Mirta’s father, to inquire about Mirta’s whereabouts and to inform him that his daughter is still alive.
The man introduces himself as a follower of the Benandanti cult and requests that Piero let him know if he hears from Mirta.
The same bar where Mirta initially met Robin is where she visits. Mirta lives with a man named Mario who was hitting on her but who ultimately kills him by consuming his blood while she tries to hide herself from prying eyes. Later, she returns to the apartment she had previously rented, where by chance, her father and his partner appear. After he administers her last rites and she kills the lover, her father sees his daughter for the first time. The Benandanti show up, and while Mirta’s father is killed in the battle, a strange rider rescues her.
Sara, a woman, was the rider. She tells Mirta that since the 17th century, the Benandanti’s only responsibility has been to pursue the Overdead. They were the ones who had been violently killed and then revived; Mirta wasn’t the only one. Sara explains to her that the Benandanti had the personnel and equipment necessary to complete their task. They used to claim to be a government agency when confronted by witnesses, and if someone reported seeing something they shouldn’t have, they used to get rid of it completely.
After they took the medicine, Robin assured Mirta that they would stay together forever. Mirta was astonished that Robin had not been raised from the dead. She is advised not to visit the crematory by Sara because the Benandnati may be there. She ignores her advice and enters the burial crypt, but before she can take any action, she sees Ago, Robin’s buddy, standing there. Ago was reportedly in love with Mirta but was unable to confess his feelings to her. As they return to Ago’s palace, he advances on Mirta but she refuses, warning him that she doesn’t trust herself and might accidentally hurt him. Ago commits himself in the belief that he will also be raised from the dead and be reunited with Mirta for all time. When Mirta returns to the crematory, she discovers that Robin’s body was absent from his burial vault. When she opens her eyes after being struck from behind, she discovers that Sara has been taken prisoner by Benandanti.
The news that Robin was still alive reached Mirta. He had conceptualised it first and had planned every detail. He was an Overdead who had joined the Benandanti as an ally. He was doing it because he had been looking for the Overdeads since since he had lost his friend Paolo to one of them. He didn’t intend to fall in love with Mirta, though. Mirta was intentionally killed by him since he knew she would be raised from the dead and he could then spend all eternity with her. Mirta is unable of handling it. She makes the decision that she will leave him. As Robin tries to stop her, she electrocutes him while killing other Benedanti. Sara and Mirta go. When they arrive in a new city, Sara advises her that she would need to perfect the skill of concealment and pick her targets with caution. Mirta was prepared for the adventure to come after going through so much.
