Life After Death is a tragicomic film about an older man who manages to push the people around him away when he would need them the most. Despite the serious theme, the film has a comic tone. The characters’ inability to understand each other is simultaneously deeply tragic and comedic. Life after death is the first autobiographical film by Klaus Härö, and at the same time his first comedy.
