Storyline

London, 2000:- Terminally ill Albert summons old war buddies Frank and Harry to his hospital bed with a bizarre request. When he dies, he wants them to snatch his corpse from the hospital morgue and drive it, in Harry's taxi, to Germany, where they all met, for burial. Thanks to Frank's ingenuity they get the body past Customs but almost lose it in France, recovering it thanks to Vicki, a German hitch-hiker that they pick up. Their good deed is in part atonement for allowing a German girl that they knew fifty-five years earlier to be killed by Russian soldiers, as they explain to Vicki. They dug her grave too and now bury Albert in close proximity to it. Vicki departs but the two old friends find her presence has been positive for them. Written by don @ minifie-1

Quotes

[Albert has asked Harry and Frank to take his body from the morgue and bury it in Germany when he dies. Harry, who is a taxi-driver, thinks that there could be a problem with doing this... ]
Harry: It's against my licence to carry a corpse... or a rabid dog, come to think of it.
Frank: [angrily] Fine, I'll order a mini-cab!
Harry: All right, all right. But if they catch us, they'll certify us. How would you like to spend the rest of your life in a padded cell?
Frank: [angrily] No problem... just so long as it isn't with you.

Slightly disapointing road movie
14 January 2018 | by raymond-andreSee all my reviews

The first twenty minutes have great promise as the dying Albert asks his two wartime buddies for a huge favor. Darkly humorous. Once the show goes on the road however the movie starts to lose its charm and the character of Vicki makes no sense at all. I cannot write more without spoiling the twist such as it is. The ending is too obvious and overstated. I was perhaps hoping for too much from the great David Warner.
