'Embalming' is the story of Miyako, a woman who decides to become an embalmer after being moved by the life-like look of her mother's embalmed corpse after it is returned to her family from overseas.
Miyako finds herself drawn into a strange mystery when the head of a suicide victim she embalms is cut off and stolen. Not a particularly interesting movie on its own, but is interesting insofar as the way the practice is portrayed socially - embalming isn't done much in Japan, and seems to still be an oddity.
A very graphic embalming scene and several shots of severed limbs makes this a movie you'd want to watch only if you have a strong stomach.
