This morbid, unusual, and critically acclaimed documentary was filmed in the most exotic locations all over the world. Of the Dead (Des Morts) deals with death, the soon dead, and the living they leave behind. Our senses are shown no mercy as we witness the brutal execution of a Phillippine Guerrilla. We are literally taken inside a cremation chamber while a human body melts and finally crumbles into nothingness. We witness-first hand- doctors trying to save a victim of multiple stab wounds, all close up, in graphic detail leaving nothing to the imagination. For those who think they have seen it all, Of the Dead, dares to be seen. Written by
In Dominique Garny's and Thierry Zeno "Des Morts" aka "Of the Dead" the viewer sees lots of dead bodies in a various states of decomposition:dissected,cremated,burned and buried.There are burial rites from Nepal,Thailand,United States,Belgium and South Korea.One particularly shocking segment involves an execution of Phillipino revolutionary by his former friend.There is also plenty of unpleasant animal butchery.The killing of four oxen is particularly harrowing and very graphic.Several interviews with muscular dystrophy patients are deadly dull.The various episodes about death and funeral are presented in pseudo-scientific style.Still if you liked "Der Weg Nach Eden" or "Orozco the Embalmer" you may give this mondo sickie a try.7 corpses out of 10.
