MORIRSE EN DOMINGO - Film

 

Julio Salas dies after a long sickness, but it is Sunday and due to economic constraints his family is forced to hire a modest funeral home. The undertaker sells the corpse to a university and Julio’s nephew discovers the business and demands the returning of his uncle’s body to be cremated; meanwhile, he falls in love with the undertaker’s daughter.

 

This story about a corpse that cannot find peace is treated under a genuine black comedy point of view, in which the director has the highest skills for creating humorous situations supported by an excellent acting performance by its cast. Lots of humor, sharp dialogues, and continuous surrealism.
