Wanna see a dead body?
13 June 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Director Mike Leigh is a master at showing the average Englishman at work and play,and this early work of his is no exception.Trevor is your basic social misfit who works as an undertakers assistant and spends his off time trying to find romance.None of Mike Leigh's actors look like actors,and therein lies the fascination with them.His characters are just real people living their lives,and Mr. Leigh has created a window where we can all take a peek at them,without them knowing about it.Always fascinating and never boring,this is a film for anyone who isn't going to feel cheated if something doesn't blow up every 5 minutes or so.
