A film of great passion
4 October 2001 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

"Undertaker`s Paradise" is a film of great passion, wonderful directorial virtuosity and stunning acting. In age when filmmakers are afraid to make films that are actually about something, M.X.Oberg made a film about a very important thing: death. That he does it with such an incredible energy and spirit makes the film even more powerful. I got the feeling all throughout "Undertaker's Paradise" that Oberg really loves his characters. As the camera moves over each of the characters, allowing us to see their lives, there's a constant feeling that we are seeing the characters souls laid bare on film. This film has haunted me since I first saw it. It's a heartfelt story with pain and joy to spare. Although utterly bizarre, "Undertaker's Paradise" miracously rings truth, despite several odd moments of an almost comedy nature. It manages to interest the audience and all those who are willing to put in the time and observe three dimensional characters interacting realistically for once. A triumph, it still never manages to have a clear emotional climax, it all sort of runs together in a big blotch of sorrow and every sinful situation you can think of. What an interesting movie !
