Driving Mum

A black and white corpse comedy from this world and the next.
A man tries to honour his mother’s dying wish to be buried in her home in a remote Icelandic village … by propping her up in the back seat of his car and driving her there.
Jon is a middle-aged man who lives with his elderly mother in rural Iceland. His overbearing mother always knows what’s best so it's only natural that when she dies, Jon fulfils her very specific wishes on how to be laid to rest. He dresses her dead body, does her make-up and puts her in the back seat of his car along with his loyal dog Bresnef to drive across the country. Accompanying loved ones on their final journey is always a sordid affair, but in this dark comedy, it’s quite the opposite. What makes this film special however, is the author’s and actors’ unique sympathy and understanding of its characters, making it one of the brightest and most memorable film experiences of the year.
