Storyline

Looking at that lonely street in that Godforsaken town lost in the middle of nowhere, you would not say this is Christmas. Of course it is snowy and the cold is biting but where is the joy of Yule? Not in the Chinese restaurant where the (non Asian) owner keeps serving sake to the local barfly and to two or three other loners pretending to feel fine. Even less so at the funeral parlor across the street where business is more than quiet: for God's sake, why doesn't anybody want to die? Edmond Zweck, the undertaker, is like a bear with a sore head and Georges, his right arm, and Eddy, the junior employee are busy killing - time. But miracles happen at Christmas, don't they? For instance in that lonely street of that Godforsaken town. Edmond, Georges and Eddy are on the verge of despair when two people enter the parlor. A man has just died and his widow and her brother want Zweck and Company to organize the funeral. Hardly trying to hide their joy, they set off for the cemetery. But as ... Written by Guy Bellinger

Ice cold

A film about funeral parlors and their services are always comedies or offbeat, weird films, not pure dramas. Because if they were genuine tragedies, there would be too many suicides among the audiences, where there is always people who are more or less depressed. In this black comedy, Jean-Pierre Bacri is of course at the right place, that's a pure role, performance for him. It suits him like a glove. Olivier Gourmet is also excellent in this story about two associates in a petty funeral parlor with many financial issues. Till one day, where a good opportunity arrives...But nothing will go as expect. You have here a pretty good time waster with some good surprises, especially at the end. From Bacri's character...

But that's not SIX FEET UNDER.
