Very beautiful and disturbing documentary about death and dissection.
3 February 2006 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

"The Road to Eden" by Robert-Adrian Peyo is actually pretty reminiscent to Nacho Cerda's cult necro flick "Aftremath".It also deals with mortician,but this time it uses real corpses not special effects.János Keserü works as mortician and pathologist at a hospital in Budapest where elderly terminal patients are nursed.The law in Hungary states that the cause of death has to be established for every patient that dies.So all corpses have to be meticulously dissected, no appendage remains untouched.Keserü learned the skill of cutting up corpses(and sawing and drilling)from his father.He has worked with death all his life and that experience has led him to develop his own views on the transience of life.He is consumed by the question of the afterlife and how people can prepare for death.Pejo and his cameraman Wolfgang Lehner filmed the activities of Keserü as coolly and educationally as possible but the pictures they collected in this way are often more gruesome than shown in many splatter movies.Really this film is not for the easily offended.You have been warned!
