A macabre comedy that proves once again that we can laugh at anything. Meet Jean Pierre Bacri, Arthur Dupont and Olivier Gourmet Tonight at 9 p.m. on La Trois .
In a small town in the middle of nowhere, Edmond Zweck’s funeral business is in decline. The company only has two employees: Georges, the right man of purpose, and Eddy, a young man who is still new to the profession. However, one fine morning a dead man shows his nose. Hope is reborn. Georges and Eddy are responsible for leading the deceased to his final resting place. In search of the cemetery, which turns out to be impossible to find, the mourning convoy is lost and the journey becomes a fiasco.
Given the context, the humor is obviously dark, but very tasty. A burlesque road movie reminiscent of the Cohen brothers’ films.
