Directed by Jan Cvitkovič
In this deft, ironic comedy by Jan Cvitkovič, every tragedy has its grimly humorous side. Grave hopping funeral orator Pero is busy eulogizing for laughs and ineptly wooing a local girl while his father stages comical suicide attempts and his free-spirited sister defies the small town ennui. The graveside humor and comic relief shows the characters’ resilience all the way to the last, formidable scene.
