REVIEW - DEAD IN A WEEK (OR YOUR MONEY BACK)

Suicide is a serious subject or so I thought until I saw this British made (very) dark comedy about a young man wanting and failing to take his own life.

I know, a strange film and an even stronger review, but actually this film was surprisingly good.

As I've said some very dark humour and certainly not a subject that will appeal to most but with the twists and turns you actually enjoy the fact that the central character has hired an assassin to kill him in one week or get his money back.

Whilst the subject matter of the film is about suicide actually the film promotes one simple truth......

Life is precious.

Rating 7 out of 10
