Tom Edmunds is at the Rome Film Festival with the protagonists of his first feature film film Dead in a Week: Or Your Money Back presented in the Everybody’s talking about it section. According to Edmunds’ initial idea, a professional killer can be a very normal 70 years old gentleman who plays bridge, loves his parakeets and his dear wife. From this basis on, Edmunds decribes his writing process to find the right balance and rhytm to a film that can make us all laugh ironically on life and death but in the end is also a tale of a young man trying to find his place in the world. Dead in a Week: Or Your Money Back is essentually about two men meeting at a point in which once wants to die and the other is the right person to “provide” him of death. As in all the best films, even the noir and comedic ones, love will save us all.
Dead in a Week: Or Your Money Back: William (Aneurin Barnard) has failed to kill himself so many times that he outsources his suicide to ageing assassin Leslie (Tom Wilkinsons). But with the contract signed and death assured within a week (or his money back), William suddenly discovers reasons to live… However Leslie is under pressure from his boss (Christopher Eccleston) to make sure the contract is completed.
