I adore Franke Potente, and would watch anything she appeared in.
I also love horror movies, and especially enjoy foreign independent films - this fits the bill on many levels.
The story may be farfetched, and the music is the cheesiest I have ever heard - but...this has become a cult favorite in our house.
Strong intelligent women standing their ground against wicked medical students, and corrupt doctors filling veins with a rubberizing agent to create fresh corpses - ahh.
Love it.

Egads, this movie will creep you out. It's got all the things that make a good cheesy horror flick: the somewhat believable plot with just the right number of twists, the pinch of gruesome (but not too terribly gory) gross-out stuff, and the "I'm-Not-Going-To-Take-This-Crazy-Stuff-Lying-Down" chick (who, in the case of this movie, is portrayed by actress Franka Potente) who discovers that some of the students in her med school program at Heidelberg University are doing some unauthorized experimentations and surgeries on random -- and sometimes not-so-random -- young people.
Because this is a German film, the DVD offers viewers the option of watching the film in the original language (with subtitles) as well as in dubbed over English and French. Having watched the film both ways, I can easily suggest that it's a far superior experience if you watch it with subtitles as the translation isn't precise in some areas. The DVD also includes your standard fare of extras -- nothing too exciting to write home about, though.
QUICK TAKE: $$$ Average price
. Compared to new releases ... it may seem a little steep. But considering that it is a movie less than five years old, imported from Germany, and that it includes a bevy of extras, the price is pretty fair.
VERDICT: **** For fans only!
Sometimes when people hear "foreign movie" they either make the assumption it's going to be better or far worse than their American counterparts. I'm happy to say that this movie falls into the former category. Anatomy is not going to rival American classics like Psycho, but for uber-fans of Potente and Furmann, Anatomy does offer a nice alternative to purchasing Scream or I Know What You Did Last Summer to round out your dvd collection with a little cheesy horror.

The 2000 German thriller Anatomy, is a solid film, that overcomes a few problems, and will leave you satisfied in the end.
Paula Henning (Franka Potente) is a gifted medical student, who is accepted into a prestigious anatomy program. Very few students get this far and it seems like a dream come true. Paula plans to make the most of her oportunity and is eager to stand out. But her ideal school days soon turn into a nightmare when she uncovers the horrifying activities of an ancient secret society, whose members perform grisly experiments on human subjects, while they are still alive.
Written and directed by Stefan Ruzowitzky, Anatomy borrows elements from some recent American horror films (or is it the other way around) to tell its gruesome tale. Its cast is populated mostly with young fresh faced actors that look good on camera. Potente doesn't let the typical conventions of the story get in the way of another fine performance, equaling that of her turn in Run Lola, Run. Ruzowitzky makes sure to have just enough excitement and gore to make forget about any story issues.

Most of the main DVD extras are presented in German with English subtitles but don't let that prevent you from taking a look at them. The audio commentary by director Ruzowitzky, showcases a filmmaker with a real zest for the process itself. Its obvious that he believes in his film very much--and isn't shy about it. There are 2 featurettes. A standard "making of" piece and a far more interesting look at the make up effects. There's also a few storyboard comparisons, and 2 deleted scenes, with commentary from the director, to study as well. A music video entitled "My Truth" by Anna Loos, who also appears as "Gretchen" in the film, tops off the video/audio extras.

They disect people like little pigs. I was really surprised by how well this movie is, especially since I had no information about it prior to renting it.
This is definitly a good movie to buy and watch at night with the doors closed. The story is interesting and the effects are great.

By Daniel Jolley TOP 50 REVIEWER on Nov. 18 2003
Format: DVD
Anatomy has a lot of good things to offers viewers: it's a horror film featuring red-hot German actress Franka Potente of Run, Lola, Run fame, and it quite ably delivers the goods. While not as groundbreaking as Run, Lola, Run, Potente's cinematic journey into the darker side of humanity is well-plotted and beautifully shot. Still being somewhat new to foreign films, I always find it fascinating to see how a foreign director molds and shapes a story. The look and feel of Anatomy is well-nigh perfect, and only a few minor issues with the plot and characterization keep it from earning five stars in my book. If you only familiarize yourself with one German actress, Potente is definitely the number one choice; she may be young, but she is a wonderfully developed actress who, I am sure, could carry the burden of a bad movie quite far on her own. Such an effort on her part is not needed in Anatomy, though, as this movie is quite good from start to finish, even turning out to be far less predictable than I was expecting.
Franka Potente plays Paula Henning, a young doctor-to-be who earns the right to study at a highly respected medical school in Heidelberg, the very school her proud, aging grandfather taught at years ago. She wants only to study and learn, but she ends up living with a fellow student from Munich named Gretchen (Anna Loos), who is quite a character in and of herself, and taking up with a strange fellow student named Caspar (Sebastian Blomberg) . The new students get an electrifying introduction to life at Heidelberg and soon begin their studies. When a young man whose life Paula had saved just days earlier turns up in the form of a cadaver on her lab table, she begins to grow uneasy.
