One of the most remarkable Italian films in recent years, The Embalmer features a middle-aged homely man who becomes obsessed with a tall, hunky waiter with a friendly disposition. Variety called The Embalmer "a compelling drama of unfulfilled dreams and frustrated desires that pulls the audience into a dark, mesmerizing world that never loosens its grip...director Matteo Garrone's measured approach and soulfully human focus combine to dignify the characters, allowing the tale of solitude, longing and sorrow to inch quietly under the viewer's skin."
