   Ever imagined to be on an operation table seeing oneself undergoing a process of dissection of organs.The movie 'Anatomie' started with such a gore scene in which a man tries to save himself from the horror.The first impression with the name and the scene might be of a 'slasher' flick for the viewer.But the movie is far away from it.



 It discusses a much more serious subject,that of ethical and unethical medical practices.When Paula Henning (Franka Potente) got her admission for her higher medical studies in University of Heidelberg,she had high hopes for future as a medical expert.She came from a family of doctors for three generation,being her Grand Dad was a previous Dean in the prestigious institution,while her dad opted to live a normal life of a doctor in a small town due to some 'un'known reasons.



  When she started her classes in Heidelberg,she soon found that it was for the best and Paula,being one was able to stand her nerves in the big league.An illustrious research for the study of Anatomy had setup in Heidelberg and had real-life like structures for the deep study of Anatomy.Meanwhile,she came to know about a guy David,whom she met her on the way to Heidelberg was killed in a suspicious way,though it was a normal death due to his medical conditions according to postmortem records.She felt something fishy.She felt the presence of an illegal society of doctors who had their on definition for ethical practices.

  Ending Note:The movie is not a one that should be categorized into  a third rated one.This one ,for me is a Crime/Thriller with some gore scenes.
