If you enjoy really dark jokes over and by dead people you will love this piece. It starts out real deep and pushes it even deeper every single minute. By the first thirty minutes you will have laughed your lungs out on the sheer absurdity of their actions. The movie gets a bit dull at the turning point and - in my humble opinion - does not manage to emerge again.
The actors do a really good job, comparable to "Kontroll" (2003), "A nyomozó" (2008).
The creators unfortunately merged one too many genres I think. Comedy and psycho-thriller make a good combination but the romantic line does not seem to fit in for me.
