Movie Info

A young woman dies of a drug overdose when she takes the ecstasy pill at a party. At the morgue, her corpse is raped by the attendant, who is overwhelmed by the youth and beauty of her body. The repressive act of necrophilia changes into something else when the girl returns from the other world and instead of pressing charges, tries to get to know her "savior" better. The film is a commentary on contemporary times where it seems to be easier to have sex than to make love. All characters have problems in their relationships with others. Despite its subject, J'aimerais Pas Crever un Dimanche avoids being voyeuristic. Instead of the bodies, the camera chooses to linger on faces as if trying to decipher what the characters are thinking at that precise moment.

Denis Rouden's photography has a handsome clarity and Sylvie Landra's editing is sharply incisive.

Audience Reviews for Don't Let Me Die on a Sunday

Artsy, but not in a bad way. Though it did get a bit weird, feeling somewhat like a Gaspar Noe flick.

Kind of held my interest for a little while, but if I have to read subtiitles the movie has to be a lot better than this. Skip it , your not missing anything.
