Roseanna is dying of a heart condition, and all she wants is to be buried next to her daughter, in a cemetery that is getting full fast. The cemetery can't expand because Capestro, the man who owns the land next to the cemetery, won't sell. While Marcello is doing good deeds to make sure no one dies, Roseanna thinks of Marcello's future. Basically he tries to ensure that no-one else dies, with comical results.
Quite simply one of the funniest films I've ever seen, watched it years ago while in Germany, and was recently reminded of it. It's on play.com for £9.24, but was wondering if any kind person could find the DVD for me for a bit less.
