Following the remarkable and critically-acclaimed Tony Manero, multiple award-winning director Pablo Larraín 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 (Alfredo Castro and Antonia Zegers) 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, Larraín weaves a complex and poetic tale from this terrifyingly tragic situation which affected an entire country and still resonates to this day.
