Summary
  • "Julio Salas muere tras una larga enfermedad, pero es domingo y su familia por dificultades económicas se ve forzada a contratar los servicios de una modesta agencia funeraria, el dueño al hacerse cargo del cadáver lo vende a la universidad. El sobrino descubre el negocio y exige que el cuerpo del tío acabe en el horno crematorio, enamorándose de paso de la hija del incinerador. Esta historia de cadáver que no consigue la paz, está tratada según los cánones de la genuina comedia negra, que el realizador sabe utilizar con habilidad, provocando situaciones muy jocosas con la ayuda de unos actores excelentes. Mucho humor, diálogos punzantes y surrealismo constante"--Container
  • "Uncle Julio dies on a Sunday, when mortuaries are closed and office clerks have to be bribed to function.

But, after having mortician Joaquin take care of the corpse, Carlos doesn't stay to make sure the cremation actually happens. Joaquin turns out to have a good business on the side, selling corpses to buyers who in turn sell them to university medical centers ..."--Robert Koehler (from the film's website)
