Next month, Kino Lorber will bring Post Mortem to Blu-ray. Director Pablo Larraín's 2010 follow-up to his acclaimed Tony Manero centers on the darkly comic exploits of a Chilean state employee (Alfredo Castro, Tony Manero) trying to endure the 1973 military coup.
From Kino's official synopsis:
"Mario (Castro)...transcribes notes during autopsies. Furtive and lonely, he becomes obsessed with his neighbor, the dance hall girl Nancy (Antonia Zegers, No), 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 begins to break down, much like his country."
Kino's Blu-ray presents the film in its 2.39:1 original aspect ratio with a 5.1 Spanish (w/English subtitles) DTS-HD Master Audio track. The disc also contains the following supplements:
Looking forward to this and (probably next year) 'No' , the C.I.C.A.E. Award winner at this year's Cannes festival. On this same subject, Icarus is releasing The Pinochet Case on SD-DVD in early September.
