This comedy of Pericles became a hope on the subject of humor
26 October 2005 | by (Dominican Republic) – See all my reviews

"Four men and a coffin" (1997) came from the hand of Pericles Mejía, an active producer of commercial who, taking his experiences in the advertising field, obtains the time, the investment and the vision to expose themselves to the public scrutiny to show a new product. This comedy of Pericles became a hope on the subject of humor, reaching an approximated budget of 6 million pesos. "Four men and a coffin" is translated like another attempt to portray to us and to expose our misfortunes, hopes, customs and odd habits. The sort of the comedy is taken again to count a story that tends to mix several aspects of the popular surroundings to decipher it in a sheet of multiple facets, but the way of its exhibition separates it of the true possibilities in the terms of its correct narrative construction. Is the story about Jorge (Cuquin Victoria) that is taking care of his best friend's burial, Jacinto (Richard Douglas). His drinking pals, among others mourners, gather and the watch which will gradually become a drinking party. In such a disorder some people try to avoid profanation and get the funeral started: the priest, Jorge'lover Evelyn, Jacinto's mother-in-law and Jacinto own widow. The priest organize the procession to the cemetery. But, following popular tradition, the departed's friend want to take the coffin to a few acquaintance homes for the last farewell.
