Synopsis:
Following the remarkable and critically-acclaimed Tony Manero, multiple award-winning director Pablo Larrain returns to the 'sealed box' of Chile during one of its darkest periods - 1973's military coup. Against this terrifying and murderous backdrop Post Mortem tells the story of an apparently insignificant and charmless couple whose poignant relationship is played out amid the death and destruction that results from military ideals imposed with no care for their cost or consequences. Employing a still, dream-like cinematography, Larrain weaves a complex and poetic tale from this terrifyingly tragic situation which affected an entire country and still resonates to this day.

Excellent dissection of the Pinochet coup - Post Mortem review by TE

Spoiler Alert
24/10/2018

Pablo Larrain here fashions a typically idiosyncratic investigation of the horrors of the Pinochet coup in Chile.

Alfredo Castro plays the enigmatic, po-faced central character who is obsessed by his desire for a woman neighbour whilst the army murders its way to power.

The collusion of some of the civil and professional population is ruthlessly exposed. "If you are not part of the solution then you are part of the problem" seems to be Larrain's theme, a viewpoint supported by the history of the terror inflicted by the Pinochet regime.

At times the film is just a tad too mannered and stylish, but overall this is another fine film by the director of the excellent 'Tony Manero'.
