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.
