Nobody dies more beautifully than Udo Kier. In Staging Death, via lively montage, Kier’s multifarious passing away in several dozen roles becomes a frantic gallop through five decades of film and TV history, and a comprehensive tribute to this fearless actor.
According to a web film search engine, actor Udo Kier appeared in 273 films. In most of these titles from masterpieces to forgotten ones, Kier died in grotesque deaths. In a humorous nod to this, he once joked: "Directors are now thinking increasingly strained about what new ways they can kill me. At some point, somebody would have to make a montage of all my film deaths." This short film finally fulfills his wish. (Sung MOON)
