Now this is a film that’s attestation that you can dish out decent entertainment with a thin wallet of change. Gabriel and Casserole’s film is a poignant, very realistic painting featuring, in the foreground, a man who has lost his wife. In the background – the rest of his family, all seemingly despondent, talking and complaining amongst himself or herself, almost indiscernible to our hero.

Now this is a film that’s attestation that you can dish out decent entertainment with a thin wallet of change. Gabriel and Casserole’s film is a poignant, very realistic painting featuring, in the foreground, a man who has lost his wife. In the background – the rest of his family, all seemingly despondent, talking and complaining amongst himself or herself, almost indiscernible to our hero.

On the day of his wife’s funeral, Arthur (a brilliant Robert E.Macklin) finds himself surrounded by family members who are all willing to support him – in anyway they see fit. Problem is, each of them has their own problems, so roles are swapped, with the griever becoming the listener.

By the time the funeral recession leads to the reception, a few home truths will have come out, some family secrets exposed, and relationships really put to the test.

This is a funny, touching and at times, rather dramatic, fly-on-the-wall piece that takes what should be a straightforward situation, but never is, and makes light of it. And, to an extent, sense of it all.
