Storyline

An unfortunate young woman, Marta, meets her tragic end in a horrendous car accident and is later transferred to the morgue. Later that night, two mortuary technicians finish their shift, however, one of them decides to stay and locks himself in the autopsy room to be left undisturbed with Marta's fresh cadaver. Little by little, the examiner by taking his time undressing and fondling the dead body, he gets excited, mutilating and then molesting the corpse with enthusiasm, while at the same time, he takes morbid mementos with his camera. In the end, when everything is finally over, the man also takes with him another grotesque souvenir and heads back home. Written by Nick Riganas

A twist in the tale...
5 September 2004 | by sheilanagig25-1See all my reviews

I first saw this film in 1998 at a film festival in London, and being able to see it on the big screen only added to the experience of seeing it. It begins as a routine autopsy, and you feel a sense of pathos as you follow the procedure, but then the whole thing becomes a little more uncomfortable, and it speaks volumes for the director that he can increase the suspense so subtly. The gore is very well done, and the ending is a masterpiece of queasy endings. The funny thing is, Nacho Cerda is one of the most well-adjusted people I've met, and it's incredible to think that something like this came out of his head. It's a short that is well worth seeing, but be prepared to be disturbed by it.
