Forensic pathologists perform autopsies. The first two consist of examination, measurement, and checking muscles. The remaining ones involve cutting away bone to expose and examine internal organs, peeling back skin and muscle, removing organs, using syringes to extract bodily fluids, and cutting pieces of tissue. Clothes are inventoried. As each autopsy ends, bodies are covered with sheets. There is no soundtrack. We see a body with extensive burns. The work is sometimes delicate, sometimes not; but it's always gory so be warned. Written by <>

Beautiful and disturbing
13 July 2002 | by (Belgium) – See all my reviews

A beautifully shot film. Suddenly you realise that you are looking at bits of people, an empty skull. A doctor speaking calmly in a microphone, with a bloodstain. The fact that there is no sound makes it even more impressive. Disturbing but fascinating.
