DYING OF LAUGHTER (aka Muertos de risa) 

  • Director: Alex de la Iglesia
  • Genre:Black Comedy
  • Year of production:1999

There was a time when everybody in Spain knew their names.

Twenty years of continuous success leave a mark. Discotheques, nightclubs, theatrical variety performances, circuses, bullrings, TV programs, Christmas galas. They succeeded where many others failed badly.

But there is also a negative side to success: envy, jealousy, paranoia... The story of Nino and Bruno is a human drama that resembles a joke. A joke that starts and ends up with gunshots being fired before some television cameras.
