    When you're dealing with a film about funeral processions in any way or form, more often than not, they're going to be surprisingly funny eventhough the subject matter is admittedly bleak. You can also expect one of two things to potentially happen, if not both: it will either prove to be incredibly life affirming or an existential nightmare.
