Mario Cornejo is going about his daily business of writing autopsy reports at the military hospital in Santiago, when the Pinochet coup d´état shakes this heretofore apolitical character out of his state of apathy. Post Mortem is neither a reconstruction of the Pinochet days, nor an angry denunciation of the period. Instead, Larrain offers a borderline-surreal –Lynchian – black comedy to show, among other things, how easy it is for ordinary people to sleepwalk into a climate of atrocity, either as victims, collaborators, or as both.
Director: Pablo Larraín
Running Time: 98 minutes
