  • Cemetery business in black and white

    Hello film experts,

    I watched this movie ages ago, actually decades ago, and I can‘t remember whether it was a British production or something else. Since it was incredibly sophisticated I think it was.
    The story is about a young man, who sees a young and very pretty lady on her way to work. He follows her so he can chat her up. As she enters her workplace he decides to pretend he was a customer. She works for an undertaker who sells various packages including a beautiful spot on the cemetery. The lady walks the gent around the premises, there is an area for pets, for poets, philosophers, simply any possible category. Also the balming procedure is shown where the departed receives a professionally created facial expression nothing like the one they had on their face when they died.
    I think the film is from the 1960ies and in black and white.

    Thank you.

    My guess is that it's Tony Richardson's 1965 adaptation of Evelyn Waugh's The Loved One. [url][/url])
