Movie: Picture: Sound: Extras: Nil
But this movie deals with a different aspect of the dead: their relationship with their undertakers. And, no, there is no necrophilia involved. Just the conceit that the newly dead still continue to exist for a while as their bodies gradually decompose, and that some gifted individuals can communicate with them.
Liam Neeson is one such, a passive/aggressive undertaker who expresses irritation from time to time that the dead refuse to accept that they are dead. Christina Ricci is the one on his slab. Meanwhile, Justin Long is the boyfriend who starts to think that perhaps she survived, and Chandler Canterbury is Neeson's protege.
But the question is: is she really dead?
This film looks very pretty, in a somewhat dark way. The contrasting elements are sure to suffer on DVD (Ricci spends most of her time in a bright red slip), so Blu-ray is definitely the way to go. The audio is all about dialogue and atmosphere, and does its job nicely. Roadshow has packed the whole thing onto a single layer disc (using less than 21GB), and provides no special extras, which is unfortunate, because the US version has a 'making-of' featurette and a director's commentary that may have gone some way towards resolving in my mind that question.
