Not a waste of time

Musical comedy-drama about an apprentice gravedigger who falls in love with a funerary expert who's just been admitted to the cemetery he works at.

The funerary expert is an intelligent, independent woman, who talks in an energetic way and goes around riding a Harley-Davidson-style motorcycle. Despite being an enjoyable kind of person, she shows no sensitivity at all. The apprentice gravedigger is a young man from the countryside, with little education, displaying unrealistic amounts of naivety and sensitivity, and having no trace of standard masculinity at all. An inversion of gender stereotypes, which could be well more captivating, were it not for the narrowness of both characters. They're superficial, they have no life history, and they lack the minimal personality complexity that could make them look human. It seems like they're children's stories characters.

It must be admitted that several times is the film pleasing to the eyes and ears. The musical scenes - which aren't many - are well produced and the soundtrack is good. This film is able to entertain. It can keep your attention and it doesn't demand any intellectual effort. But it can't cause any emotions or laughs either. After one hour, you'll be probably checking your watch to see if it's still going to take too long for it to be over. It's that kind of film that you immediately forget as soon as you leave the room.

7/10
