One morning, he is contacted by the inevitable, by hallucination, as he thinks. Later, Death enters his home and his life, personified in a man’s body: Joe Black (Brad Pitt) has arrived. His intention was to take William with him, but accidentally, Joe’s former host and William’s beautiful daughter Susan (Claire Forlani) have already met. Joe begins to develop certain interest in life on Earth, as well as in Susan, who has no clue with whom she’s flirting.
Plot: When the grim reaper comes to collect the soul of megamogul Bill Parrish, he arrives with a proposition: Host him for a “vacation” among the living in trade for a few more days of existence. Parrish agrees, and using the pseudonym Joe Black, Death begins taking part in Parrish’s daily agenda and falls in love with the man’s daughter. Yet when Black’s holiday is over, so is Parrish’s life.

In short, an excellent and not too long film
Whenever this film is aired, I’m drawn to watch it. The pace, like life, is slow. Some people find this to be a problem. I feel sorry for those people; maybe they’ve been so saturated by “fast food” films and reality TV that they think that’s the way life is supposed to be. Unlike life, the film has no “wasted space”. So, while it may seem too long for theatre viewing, it’s plenty short for sitting back in an easy chair for three hours and just letting it draw you in–with the excellent dialogue (including the Patois), excellent performances by truly talented actors, and above all the [again] excellent score by Mr. Newman. If you’re a romantic not just about love, but also about life, then treat yourself and watch it.
Pretty Vacant (but it Sticks to the Roof of Your Mouth)
“Death Takes a Holiday” is revised and updated for a lovingly glamorized Brad Pitt. According to the DVD sleeve’s synopsis, “Bill Parrish (Anthony Hopkins) has it all – success, wealth, and power. Days before his 65th birthday he receives a visit from a mysterious stranger, Joe Black (Pitt), who soon reveals himself as Death. In exchange for extra time, Bill agrees to serve as Joe’s earthly guide. But, will he regret his choice when Joe unexpectedly falls in love with Bill’s beautiful daughter Susan (Claire Forlani)?”
The picturesque Pitt (and Mr. Hopkins) will please most aficionados; but, the movie is overindulgent. Jake Weber (as Drew), Marcia Gay Harden (as Allison), and Jeffrey Tambor (as Quince) give the production fireworks some much-needed balance, with fine second tier performances; possibly, Mr. Weber offers the film’s best characterization. The scenes with Pitt confabbing with a Jamaican woman in the hospital should have been sent to deleted scenes heaven; the actress, Lois Kelly-Miller, could have played a doctor who recognized Pitt as an accident victim.
