Burke And Hare * John Landis (2010)

“Burke and Hare” is somewhat of a screwballcomedy, but then playing in the early 19th century and having a dark theme. In Edinburgh two universities are coming up, for both studies human bodies are required and the two persons from the title have found both a market and a sollution for their financial problems. Unfortunately the demand is larger than the supply, so the two have to come up with sollutions for the growing number of bodies needed. The film is funny, a bit too silly sometimes, but the humour is nicely grim. Also everything looks really nice, so “Burke And Hare” could be a title to remember when you are looking for some lighter entertainment.
