Suicídio Encomendado

(Portugal, 2007, 90 minutes)

A miserable young man is approached by a company specialised in organising suicides. A clever premise for an absurdist black comedy is wasted in what is essentially a cheap short pointlessly and amateurishly extended to feature length. Worth a mark for trying.
