“Romanticized as a fruit of desire and imagination,Postmortem plays out as a fleeting moment between two men who briefly reunite to reminisce and unload.”


… in 5 words:

Slow paced and not  enjoyable.


… in 25 words:

Described as a fleeting moment, you would expect more intensity but Postmortem is uneventful and just plain meh. It’s not awful, but it’s not good.


… in 50 words:

Postmortem almost feels like a dead body; rigid and quite cold. There are glimpses of a beautiful ‘what if’ in the sex scene but then life appears to return to normal and after the boring first half it leaves you feeling… empty. It’s not bad but it doesn’t stand out.
