Movie Info

An ambitious, working-class medical graduate with dreams of becoming a research physician arrives in Berlin eager to begin his internship at a reputable clinic in director Stefan Ruzowitzky's sequel to his 2000 sleeper Anatomie. Motivated by his desire to provide patients with human warmth often lacking in medical treatment, and driven by his desire to discover a cure for the rare muscle disease that has crippled his brother Willi, Jo (Barnaby Metschurat) eagerly begins his internship as scheduled. When Jo is approached to perform an unauthorized operation on the daughter of a colleague, he initially refuses, only relenting after personally witnessing the graveness of her situation. His successful operation and detailed dissertation drawing the attention of Professor Mueller-LaRousse (Herbert Knaup), the charismatic Mueller-LaRousse subsequently invites Jo to join in weekly gatherings in his "research salon." As Jo becomes a member of Mueller-LaRousse's elite group of talented physicians, the stress of his internship is soon lifted, replaced by a compromising situation that may not only cost Jo his career, but his life as well.

Critic Reviews for Anatomy 2 (Anatomie 2)

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (2)

Suspenseful entertainment -- but it's also a suitably chilling cautionary tale.

August 12, 2004 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Where the first film was something of a teen horror film, the follow-up, again from writer-director Stefan Ruzowitzky, is more of an unintentional comedy.

The prognosis is not good

August 22, 2004 | Rating: 2/5

By the time we get to an unintentionally hilarious hospital-hall chase scene and an overblown O.R. climax, it's clear that Ruzowitzky hasn't quite the wit to match his flair.

Slightly above-average for its type of movie, and slightly better than its predecessor.

The sequel to the pretty decent medicine thriller does not live up to the original film. It neither has a star like Franka Potente carrying the movie (although she does appear in a few scenes, which are easily among the better ones of the movie), nor the same spooky atmosphere. The acting ranges from hopelessly over the top to convincing, as far as that's possible considering the cardboard characters presented. The plot is pretty unrealistic, the soundtrack switches from wannabe John Williams score to techno rhythms and the directing is somewhat confusing too at times. What saves this movie from being a catastrophe is its fast pace and that it's not boring for a second. Still, pretty disappointing and easily forgotten.
