Storyline

The village of San Hilario used to make its living from its wonderful cemetery and the skill and talent of its inhabitants in organising fabulous funerals. People came to San Hilario to die with panache and style.

But the need for quick funerals and the pace of modern life in general meant that the people of San Hilario had almost run out of work. Thus, they were keenly awaiting the arrival of their new client Germán Cortés.

Germán wanted to spend his last days in the village. His arrival would allow the inhabitants of San Hilario to pull out all the stops as never before, probably saving the busines and indeed the village itself.

But when Germán dies before reaching his destination, the good people of San Hilario end up welcoming a fugitive by mistake.

The fugitive is happy to not clarify the misunderstanding of his identity, and so witnesses in increasing amazement the preparations for his own funeral.

An endearing subtle film
31 December 2005 | by See all my reviews

A criminal on the run finds himself in the charming back-water town of San Hilario. The town folk mistakenly take the criminal for a former resident who has come back to the town of his birth, to die. The criminal is grateful, but doesn't really understand the town's hospitality nor the regard with which they seem to hold the criminal.

This Spanish language film is sub-titled. This fact along with the lack of any narration (by characters or narrator) creates a bit of confusion for the viewer. This is quickly cleared up as the movie progresses and the sub-title reading becomes easy enough to enjoy.

The movie has touching moments, as well as a humorous look at the pro and cons of living the life of a human. Well worth the effort, especially on a raining Saturday night with a fire, a cup of hot chocolate, and a warm friend.
