Haunting but incredible
9 September 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Chilean director Pablo Larrain successfully out-does his previous masterpiece 'Tony Manero'.

'Post Mortem' builds gradually but once the revolution invades the lives of Mario and Nancy the film never loses pace. It really is one for those who love mix of lavish cinematography combined with gritty realism that Chilean cinema does so and Larrain is truly becoming one of the masters of South American cinema.

It's a more mature, more European film than Manero but is all the better for it.

A tender, slow-burn masterpiece.
