This is a fresh proposal ...give it a chance!
21 February 2007 | by (Mexico) – See all my reviews

I was a bit afraid this movie will result in a full of clichés and unoriginal comedy resembling late movies made in Mexico, however this movie was a nice surprise. It is an original and funny (in a twisted sense) premise covered with black and even acid humor...you may find yourself laughing at things you are not supposed to be laughing at...and you will enjoy it. The main characters are enjoyable and well written, the actors performing them are great, hope to see them again. I have not seen Sobrenatural but after seen Morirse en Domingo I will, and hope the next Gruener film won't take 10 years more. In short, if you want to see a fresh film with an irreverent vision about death, give a chance to this film, you won't regret.
