La muerta 1961
A work filmed in 35mm. On changing format, Antonio Mercero would enjoy new experiences. The content is more powerful, the comedy more far-reaching. Although in La muerta (1961) black humour prevails. It tells the tale of a group of friends who go to a farm for the weekend. On arrival, they find that the housekeeper is dead. But they’re not about to let her death ruin their plans and they carry on as if nothing had happened. For example, despite the woman’s body still being in the house, the youngsters swim in the pool without giving it a second thought.
