Storyline

Martin (deceased) is stuck in a dead-end job, welcoming the newly departed into the afterlife. All he dreams of is going 'Up There'. But his plans are thrown into disarray when he has to team up with the relentlessly chirpy Rash and together they lose a new arrival. The mismatched pair give chase and end up in a remote seaside town populated by cocky teenagers, sinister old women and the enigmatic Liz, who has 'suicide written all over her'. Can they stop bickering long enough to find the lost soul? Will Rash be reunited with his brother Chunky? And can Martin get back in time to finally get 'Up There'? UP THERE is a killer comedy about life, death and irritating friends. Written by Anonymous

surprising - a charming British comedy
23 November 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I was visiting a friend in Mannheim and we randomly got tickets for this film. I didn't know what to expect but was pleasantly surprised - a classic British comedy but with a twist.

The characters were really well developed and I especially warmed to the lead actress Kate O'Flynn. I found her character very emotionally engaging - a perfect blend of warmth, comedy, and darkness about her.

The other characters were very good also. Burn Gorman was perfectly cast and I will definitely look out for him in Batman when it arrives. Brilliant dead-pan performances from the supporting cast too - absolutely hilarious.

It's a great idea for a film and I look forward to seeing what else this first time writer/director has to offer.

All in all, I was very pleased we chanced upon this film.
