Fantastically Funny, Yet Beautifully Dark!!!
17 May 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Excellent movie about.. well.. uhm.. a guy who earns his living by doing funeral speeches, a suicidal and widowed father and a sister and her kid who really miss their man/father. And then there's another sister who's really quite a few fries short of a happy meal and a quiet but cheerful neighbor.

A typical tragic comedy, East-European style? Perhaps... but an endearing and surprisingly dark one too.

Plot-wise: wow.. it's a well balanced set of interacting stories, with intelligent and witty dialogues and scenes. It's also very brutal in its sadness, the final scene really took my breath away and I immediately checked the audience's reaction which was very similar.

Conclusion: A cynic would call this a cynical feel-good movie and I'd agree. I loved its ups and downs of happy and sad moments and characters. Very beautiful. A real Gem if you can find it!
