De Humani Corporis Fabrica on IMDb

Five centuries ago, anatomist André Vésale opened up the human body to science for the first time in history. Today, De Humani Corporis Fabrica opens the human body to the cinema. It reveals that human flesh is an extraordinary landscape that exists only through the gaze and attention of others. As places of care, suffering and hope, hospitals are laboratories that connect every body in the world.

What we think

Castaing-Taylor and Paravel have made an authentically scientific artwork, one that readily admits how little we really understand about what makes our bodies human.

What others think

There are brutal, almost black-comic “reveal” shots: a patient chats with the doctor and the camera pulls back to reveal he is operating on the fully conscious man’s brain.
Peter Bradshaw The Guardian
A fantastic voyage into the great beyond of the human body.
David Jenkins Little White Lies
Many of the surgeries thrillingly operate as mini-mysteries; given almost no context, it’s up to the viewer to gauge what is being operated on and why.
