The Body

I have watched this movie once. This was on .


A detective searches for the body of a femme fatale which has gone missing from a morgue.

Hitchcock-style psychological thriller.

The Body


This is a murder-mystery thriller by Spanish director Oriol Paulo. Set mostly in a morgue as a husband finds out his wife is dead, but her body is missing. As the story progresses, we find out that he could have murdered her because of his affair with a younger woman. While he is being interviewed and the detective investigates the case, strange things start happening - things only he knows start appearing.

This is a taut thriller that keeps you on the edge throughout. You double guess what is happening over-and-over again; is she dead or not? The story starts to become a little complicated, but the direction makes it relatively easy to follow.

The feel is grey but it is atmospheric. Everyone plays their role with a certain edge. And the ending, wow, that was unexpected but ties the whole story up nicely.

Overall, it's not quite on the same level of the director's other movies; The Invisible Guest which has a similar murder-mystery story nor Mirage. But it is a well-crafted movie with a great story, one that you should watch.
