Inexplicably, a young woman's life is fading away. Whatever it was that started as a rash and a bruise, it keeps spreading and even though she still holds on, from the inside, a terrible scourge is eating her alive. Her job at the hospital, the friends and her love life are all fractions of a once regular life which is now slowly slipping away and sooner or later, her body will blemish from the blooming flowers of decay and the stigmata of an unfathomable punishment that demands a transcendental change. Eventually, as the festering wounds claim the remaining flesh, the woman will be reduced to a mere fragment of her former self, with a few grim Polaroids being the only remnants of her existence. Without a doubt, any resistance is futile and the malleable meat will be sculpted because inevitably, before Death's omnipotence, the feeble flesh will succumb to life's ultimate truth: what was once alive, undoubtedly shall perish.

I watched this movie a few months ago, when I was going through a phase of trying to find low-budget "gems", as there is plenty of unheralded talent out there. As stated in the plot summary, it is a movie about a woman who slowly rots away. That's it. There is no more to the premise. The audience is not informed as to why, there is no climax, and to conclusion. The movie throws out the fundamentals of story-telling, yet still seems to tell to tell a story. I suppose I could try to explain it as a phenomenological attempt at movie-making, but I think I would be deluding myself. there simply is no story. Low budget movies really have to have something special to make up for the lack of funds. in the absence of resources, you must have a great script, great acting, great cinematography, or a combination thereof.
Thanatomorphose has none of these. None.
I hate to be so harsh, as I am sure quite a few people made a great effort to produce this film. Sadly, their efforts were (IMO) misguided.
