User Reviews

humor as package
29 August 2014 | by VincentiuSee all my reviews

pure comedy. hilarious in great style. crazy humor. but... it could be only the package. for many films, the end represents the key/the great revelation. not in this case. because the run, the battle between Death and the good looking doctor is , for me, only the package for the state of old lady who prefers the meeting with her husband against the gray life. the show is only the manner to not transform entire story in a sentimental one. and the success is guaranteed. but the flavor of first part remains. so, a film for the dark comedy fans but , in same measure, for the admirers of lovely stories about solitude. so, must see it !
