Death At A Funeral

Synopsis: Daniel is a decent young man, married to Jane, still living at his father's home. When his father dies, it is up to him to organize his funeral. On this painful morning, the suitable grave expression on his face, Daniel is ready to welcome his father's friends and relatives. But preserving the dignity inherent in such circumstances will be a hard task. Particularly with an undertaker who botches his work, the return from the USA of his famous but selfish brother, his cousin's fiancé who has accidentally ingested drugs, the presence a moron who takes advantage of the sad event to win back the heart (or rather the body) of a woman who is about to marry another, of a handicapped old uncle who is also the most unbearable pain in the neck. To cap it all, Daniel notices the presence among the mourners of a mysterious dwarf nobody else seems to know...

Subbed and Timed By darkskythe

Straight through there and

to the left

Would you like to...

- Who's this?

- Pardon me?

That's not my father.

Shit, we've taken the wrong one.

We're really sorry for this.

We'll go back and get him.


They brought the wrong coffin.

You're joking.

Can you believe that?

Good thing I checked.

We could be running the service for

some random member of the public.

What kind of business are these people

running anyway?

My God.

There's just so much to worry about

you know. And mom's in such a state...

Robert is clear he'll not do anything to

help, assuming he gets here at all.

Even the funeral speech is awful

I'm sure it's not that awful.

Yeah, it is.

I was thinking that maybe Robert...

..should write the speech.

He's such a good writer.

Maybe we should

let him do it.

You're every bit as good a writer as

your brother Daniel, if not better,... just have to let somebody

else read your novel.

Everything is gonna be okay.

When the funeral is over...

...we just have to focus on

moving out of here

...and starting our own

lives properly.

You called them?

Didn't you Daniel?

You did put the deposit

on the flat?

I'll sort it out.

I promise.

God, i hate funerals.

Don't you?

They're just so depressing.

It's just the death and


...know what i mean?

Do you agree Justin?


Yeah, it's alright

Alright? How can you possibly think

of that as alright?

Why are you even coming to this?

You don't even know Daniel.

I do know Daniel.

I met him a couple of times.

A couple of times. Well he's not

a friend, is he?

No, not a friend

If you're gonna smoke will you please

put that out the window?

I'd rather not get your cancer

thank you very much.

I got my own problems to be

worrying about.

Yeah, like what?

The discoloration on my wrist

i keep telling you about

Look at it.

It's fucked.

I'm fucked.

Why are we even coming, eh?

Cause of Martha, isn't it?


Are you okay?

Not too bad, thanks Martha.

I'm a bit nervous.

About seeing my Dad?

I just don't think i've been so

openly hated by anyone before.

He just hates everyone.

You mustn't take it to heart.

You need to relax with him.

I can't help it.

He puts me on edge.

He'll be more concerned his sister

husband just died.

He's not gonna be focused

on you.

Anyway, I'm sure when i tell him

that we're getting married...

...He'll start to learn

to accept you.

Are you sure about that?

Of course.

I can't really see Victor

as the accepting type.

We're on our way to a funeral you wanker!

Haven't you got any respect?

Okay, calm down.

It's all right, breathe.

Through your nose.


Deep breaths.

You alright?

That fucking...

Alright, i'm gonna go down.

Hope they brought the right

coffin this time.

I'll come with you.

It's okay, I can do it.

I know, I know you can.

I'm just gonna check on

the seats

To make sure there's enough room

for uncle Alfie.



Hey mate. How are you?

You alright?


Of course I remember

uncle Alfie.

Absolutely fine.

Yeah, not a problem ata all.

No. Of course I don't mind.

Alright. Yeah, don't worry.

It's fine.

I promise.

See you soon.

Okay, bye.


Is this...your father sir?

Yes, it is yes.

Hey mum.

Yoy allright?

I just don't know what i'm

going to do without him.

What do i have to live for now?

Don't be silly.

You got your friends, family...

You got me and Jane

and Robert...

Where is Robert?

Have you heard from him?

His plane will land at 10:00

But he'll be here.

Don't worry.

If there's anything i can do Sandra...
