Storyline

Two city-boy brothers, one a charismatic optimist, the other a whining corporate sell-out, return to the countryside for their father's funeral. On checking out his decrepit estate the boys find one of their dad's ancient friends hiding in a closet with a bag full money. Whilst they decide what to do the pensioner is left to suffocate in the closet, leaving them with a much bigger problem to deal with; tell the police, or leave the body in his own home and pretend nothing happened (keeping the money in the process). This opens their world up to a series of bizarre incidents resulting in the village's quirky population gently decreasing during their short stay. Written by Fabian Brannegan

it made me chuckle...a lot
11 August 2011 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

Bought the Blu-Ray the other day, expecting a nice dark comedy in tone with my own sense of humor and boy, I wasn't disappointed. Reminded me a lot of the original "Death at a Funeral",not as good, but very very close. The fact that it's filmed in black/white adds to the dark mood of the film, reminiscent of the good old movies made in the "Arsenic and old lace" style minus the slapstick comedy. The acting is top notch,brilliant actors portraying all the wacky characters you expect to find in a small English village in the middle of nowhere. My personal favorite is a draw between the gay vicar and the oddball policeman.I won't go into the story, but I highly recommend this film to anyone who appreciates the English sense of humor. It's a brilliant little gem of a film that deserves a wider audience.Wish I cold have seen this in a cinema.9 out of 10.
