Written by György Pálfi & Zsófia Ruttkay
Directed by György Pálfi
Based on short stories by Parti Nagy Lajos
This import follows three generations of Hungarian men during critical times of their lives. The first sequence follows a lowly and slow-witted military private who has a very strong (and very graphic) fantasy life. When he's not performing menial jobs for his asshole of a lieutenant or burning himself with his weekly candle rationing, he is usually engaged in one sick sexual fantasy or another. In one instance (that blurs the line between fantasy and reality), he has sex with a pig carcass while dreaming about his lieutenant's wife...and 9 months later, she gives birth to a baby boy.
Complete with pig tail.
The repugnant pig-tailed bastard grows up to become a competitive eater, his life transforming into a grotesque cycle of eat-vomit-eat. This revolting cycle somehow leads to a wife and child--though, granted, not the cream of the genetic crop.
Though spawned by girthy parents, this child grows to be a pale and sickly looking specimen, who has eschewed the world of speed eating in favor of taxidermy. He cares for his morbidly obese father and his feline companions with more than a little resentment, although it later becomes obvious that he has nothing else to live for.
Now, I'll be the first to admit that I probably just don't "get it". Those of you that do get it, maybe you can explain to me what you liked about this flick. But in the meantime, I'm going to go watch El Topo or Holy Mountain again.
