real faces of death
1 October 2009 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

First off all, it's unbelievable that the maker of this documentary was able to film dead people. I mean, they are really dead, no puppets, real persons. What we have here is a docu made around a man who has respect for the dead. The docu has an easy start, we start to know the doctor, the man who dissect the dead. It is filmed in Budapest, that is maybe the reason why they could make this movie. It's a Spanish docu so the subs are in Spanish, the docu was distributed in Germany so the narrator speaks German. if you don't understand German or Spanish then sometimes you will have a problem, but try to watch it. as said, it starts out easy, first we see dead people that the man has to dress for funeral and doing some make up of their face. So far no problem, but when to docu goes deeper into the subject of do we have a soul we go more and more into the real stuff. The dissection. And that really isn't for the faint of heart. First of he scalps the dead and removes the brains, afterwards he cut open the body, it's all shown before the camera. really, if you aren't ready for it don't watch it. And if you like to watch it, try to find yourself a copy, only available on VHS, good luck and RIP. This is the real face of death
