Storyline

In a morgue, the corpse of a young man that suddenly died on the streets probably due to a heart attack will be examined by the coroner Elizabeth (Letícia Spiller). She questions with her colleague the death of a person so young and handsome, but the brain of the dead man somehow is working and he falls in love for her. Meanwhile, a deranged man invades the morgue and threatens Elizabeth with a gun, with the witness of the dead man, who is immobilized (since he is dead) and unable to help her. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Bizarre and Surrealistic Love Story

In a morgue, the corpse of a young man that suddenly died on the streets probably due to a heart attack will be examined by the coroner Elizabeth (Letícia Spiller). She questions with her colleague the death of a person so young and handsome, but the brain of the dead man somehow is working and he falls in love for her. Meanwhile, a deranged man invades the morgue and threatens Elizabeth with a gun, with the witness of the dead man, who is immobilized (since he is dead) and unable to help her.

"The Pulse" is a bizarre and surrealistic love story, indeed very weird and intriguing, but with a great camera work. In the end, there is a message that people must love while alive, since after death there is nothing but loneliness and darkness. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "O Pulso" (The Pulse")
