Post Mortem

A second part of director Pablo Larrain's celebrated trilogy about Chile during the dictatorial reign of Augusto Pinochet, Post Mortem is a "grim, intense, mordantly comic little film" (A.O. Scott, New York Times) about a civil servant transformed by the 1973 military coup.

Mario (Alfredo Zegers), is an unassuming state employee who transcribes notes during autopsies. Furtive and loneyl, he becomes obsessed with his neighbor, the dancehall girl Nancy (Anotnia Zegers), who is involved with a group of left-wing activists. With the coup, and the death of President Salvador Allende, Nancy's friends are hunted down, and Mario's hospital becomes clogged with the bodies of dissenters. Soon the violence filters into Mario's psyche, and he beings to break down, much like his country.

Following the brilliant Tony Manero (2008, available from Kino Lorber), and preceding the recently completed No (2012), Post Mortem is "a new and original vision of political terror" (J. Hoberman, Blouin Art Info) that remain urgently relevant to the repressive regimes of today.
