BLACK WEDDING is a pitch-dark comedy on marriage. Not a single word is spoken, but murder is ubiquitous. It’s the uproarious story of a husband and wife that artfully try to kill each other — again and again, for 73 minutes, without speaking a single word. It’s the way it is sometimes in a marriage. But the crafty couple pursue their devious plans without their daughter, who has sinister intentions all of her own. And so, one dramatic event chases the other – hilariously, surprisingly, and shockingly.
