Showcases a lot of eccentric people but making a good job out of it
Saw this at the Rotterdam film festival (iffr.com) 2016. I did not expect, reading the synopsis on the festival website, a gallery of eccentrics. We got it nevertheless but I'm not complaining. Leave your logic at home, since a real corpse in the real world cannot survive three nights without producing an unhealthy smell, unlike this particular corpse that seemed to get away with natural phenomena as we know it. The whodunit and the role of the police are just a small part of the story, merely a vehicle to assemble all these non-average figures into one single story, flowing with unexpected turns of events from begin to end, without losing its drive and without dull moments.
