After another failed attempt to commit suicide, hapless writer William addresses the services of hired assassin Leslie, the inexorable angel of death from the Killers Guild, an organization that is ready to help anyone who needs a quick and painless death. Leslie has a good heart, but an unsteady hand. The authorities want to retire him, and the contract that has turned up is the only chance to postpone the inevitable. However, the case intervenes in the fortuity. The fate suddenly smiled to William: he falls in love. Written by Peter-Patrick76 (peter-patrick@mail.com)

The barnstorming comedy we've been waiting for since In Bruges!
10 July 2018 | by ttmleviganSee all my reviews

It's rare you get laugh-out-loud British Independent Comedies in the cinema, but that's exactly what Dead in A Week is. The director does a really great job of delivering big laughs with sensitive material. The performances are brilliant across the board with Christopher Eccleston's sweary head-of-the-guild-of-assassins especially memorable. The older couple steal the show at the climax with some heartfelt moments. The film takes a comic look at our sense of purpose in life. It reminded me of In Bruges and Fargo and we don't see many films like that these days - I thought is was great!
