Summary: Three stories. Three ages. Three men. Grandfather, father, son. One is an orderly, one is a leading sportsman, and one is a master taxidermist. One desires love, the other success, and the third immortality. (Festival de Cannes)
When the first scene is a guy with flames coming out of his penis, you know you're in for something special. With scenes that combine necrophilia and bestiality (in honestly a fantastic sequence), gluttony, explicit gore and more vomit than a moleitau - it's unfortunately easy to forget the Hungarian history in the moment, as the true weight of the film comes with hindsight. Not when you're overwhelmed by content that would make the Marquis de Sade smile.
Wonderfully obscure film about man's instinctual need to immortalize oneself through passing on a legacy through a son. Food, sex, birth, death and many other human facets are explored... beautiful and disguisting (sometimes simultaneously).
Explicit, gore, ... whatever the adjective may be, this all reflects the stylistic beauty of Taxidermia. ... The style of every different story is amazing. ... The cinematography, the absurdity, and the amazing ending, this film is definitely worth viewing.
Three stories. Three penises. Three men. Grandpenis, penis, penis. One is a penis, one is a leading penis, and one is a master penis. One desires penis, the other penis, and the third penis. (Fesitval de Penis) And that's just the first 15 minutes.
A dismally boring film filled with little more than a series of gross out scenes that should be made by kids on youtube not film directors. There's next to no story and what little there is, is loosely strung together and poorly plotted. There's absolutely nothing going on behind the pretentious facade.
It’s pretty visually striking. I was very impressed by some of the shots. The score by Amon Tobin is also worth a mention. It’s creepy, disturbing and grotesque and I wouldn’t exactly say I enjoyed it, but it’s sure interesting.
