One Halloween, the alcoholic mother of good-for-nothing Raymond suddenly dies, and he throws her body in a ditch. Repenting, he calls his sister Angelie, an actress who he has not seen for ten years, to help find the corpse. But the corpse they bring back in the ruined family home is not that of their mother.

Bear in mind, I went to this movie with absolutely no expectations or preconceived notions. I knew only of the main actor. It is gross and it is funny from beginning pretty much til the end. The acting is enjoyably over the top and the script is sufficiently spare leaving us appreciating some moments of silence, during images filled with sous-entendus even more gross than the actual script.
The notion of comedy here will possibly be lost on a great many viewers as it deals with sex and gore in a very Québécois way, if I dare say so, but I laughed out loud in many moments and plenty of images and moments will forever have a drawer in my mind.
