Death in the Seine (1988)

From April, 1795 to September, 1801, three hundred and six bodies were taken from the River Seine in Paris where they were cared for by two mortuary attendants who methodically noted down the particulars of each corpse. With information later provided by witnesses, it became possible to speculate upon the lives and manner of death of the decedents - a subject all the more intriguing since all of those taken from the Seine had witnessed the French Revolution. Directed by Peter Greenaway. c1994. 44 min.
