This film is both pretentious and disgusting in equal measure. A war correspondent comes back home with a spiritual crisis after witnessing the horrors of war and decides to watch an autopsy to come to terms with his own mortality. The first 30 minutes is pure boredom as our main character is spliced into stock war footage. Then we get REAL autopsy footage interspersed with on-the-street comments about death (the English dubbing makes much of this unintentionally humorous). Melodrama enters the film when we find out that the doctor's wife is cheating on him (scored with great 70s Eurolounge music). During all of this we get long monologues about life and death and a surrealistic sequence of a bunch of people (ballerina, violinist, wrestlers, etc.) wandering around a forest(?).
Definitely a must-see for fans of delirious Eurotrash cinema.
