The film explores the complex relationship between a mother and a hypochondriac son increasingly worried about his health. When she’s diagnosed with cancer, their lives become a race to see who will die first.

A black comedy in black and white, Je me tue à le dire is far from being the kind of film that uses those features as shortcuts or a restricted goal. The black and gray tones are its melting pot for developing a film in which characters matter. They are people who can suffer and enjoy, hyperbolic humans whose intensities, exaggerations, and hypochondriac natures –the main character is a hairy sounding board for those kinds of fears– stake their relationships: their love affairs and –most especially and movingly– their mother-daughter connections. Death by Death gets it right where most films with similar starting points break down: Xavier Seron’s surprising first film combines humor with absurdity without cancelling or detaching itself from emotions, and stands as a unique sentimental black comedy.
