Aro Recommended Plots with a View


aka: Undertaking Betty
UK 2002, 88 minutes
Dir. Nick Hurran
Rating: [M]
Genres: Comedy / Black Comedy


Aroview: Lunatic Welsh farce in which an unhappy Brenda Blethyn contrives with a besotted funeral director (Molina) to fake her own death so as to escape a lifeless marriage.

Complications snowball when a rival director, played in hair-raising style by Christopher Walken, tries to get in on the funeral action. Packed with slapstick, song-and-dance numbers and sundry shenanigans, this is totally overcooked, but enjoyably so.
