Witty, clever, tasteful comedy about a funeral
on 14 April 2016
Witty, clever. How to make a tasteful comedy out of a funeral.
Jack Lemmon is a busy American tycoon torn from the golf links to fly to Iscia by the death of his father.
Juliette Mills is a flower shop assistant in London who meets him on the ferry on her way to attend her mother's funeral.
The tycoon wants to get his father back to America subito because all the factories are going to close down for half an hour to watch the funeral service by televised link. But this is not the way things are done in Italy! The hard pressed hotel manager has to arrange everything and not all is as it might be....
A family film, so long as you don't mind a quick flash of nudity in the best possible taste and quite within the story.
Should not be watched after a recent family bereavement.
