Forensic pathologists perform autopsies. The first two consist of examination, measurement, and checking muscles. The remaining ones involve cutting away bone to expose and examine internal organs, peeling back skin and muscle, removing organs, using syringes to extract bodily fluids, and cutting pieces of tissue. Clothes are inventoried. As each autopsy ends, bodies are covered with sheets. There is no soundtrack. We see a body with extensive burns. The work is sometimes delicate, sometimes not; but it's always gory so be warned.Written by
Though many may find this film repulsive, I find it utterly beautiful because of the certain sadness it evokes. The anonymity of the people we see being cut up make us more aware of how fragile human life can be. The lack of sound only adds to the poignancy of the film.
