Death Is Beautiful: Michele Soavi Directs Dellamorte Dellamore

28 min

Sorry about the other day, I was

a bit crass. I didn't mean to be.

My name's Francesco Dellamorte.

This is the only job I could get,

even with a degree in biology!

Anyway, we all end up here

sooner or later, don't we?

l got a great little

house. Want to see it?

l don't live alone, I've

got a helper, Gnaghi.

He's a real conversationist.

The cemetery's small but it

has got a marvellous ossuary.

An ossuary!

l have never seen

anything so... exciting!

Neither have l.

-lt's like in my dreams!

-This is my dream.

-l couldn't ask for anything more!

-Me neither.

You know, you've got

a real nice ossuary.


You will allow me to return, won't you?

-You will allow me to kiss you just once, won't you?


Not like this.

Like this.


l must be faithful to

the memory of my husband!

l can't! I can't.

lt's not my fault. lt's this place.

l feel strange tremors. lt's

not the cold, I'm not afraid.

This place wants me to...

lt's forcing me to...

l don't want to!

l don't want to!

l can't!

l can't!

No! No!

Don't be afraid. lt's just ignis fatuus.

Why here? Why on your

poor husband's grave?

l've never kept anything from him.

We trusted each other implicitly.

He would have liked to know.

Well, if that's the case...

-These lights!

-Let them watch.

What's better than watching

two lovers making love?

Just to have a bit of privacy.

Sorry, the lady wants stars only.

lt's never been like this

before. With anybody but you.

No-one will ever make us part.

Gnaghi, the gun!

l can explain, listen to me! You

have always been so understanding!

That's life.

lt's nothing, my love. You're fine.

-Great! Just when I don't need it any more!


Don't just stand there,

go call Dr. Vercesi!

Go on, get the doctor! Go on, move!
