I don't know if anybody else caught this on Sunday night. It was advertised as a 'black comedy' which is a pretty good description.
I thought is was rather strange in places but very funny in others, I didn't see the twist coming and found the end rather touching.

All in all not a bad way to spend a Sunday evening Smile

It reminded me a little bit of a film called 'Last Orders' only there the aim was to dispose of their friend's ashes in the sea at Margate, considerably less bother than trying to transport a body across to Germany via Prague in a cardboard box Laughing

Really enjoyed Last Orders...good film, with Helen Mirren looking quite dowdy for a change.

A friend who I work with was one of the extras on Albert's Memorial!

In addition, an episode of King Of The Hill had Hank receive instructions, following his father's death, to dispose of the ashes down the toilet in a pub that was on the site of where General Patton fought Pancho Villa.

The landlord was not impressed as several others from the father's platoon had given the same request in their wills - he said the ashes regularly blocked the toilet!
