Taxidermia, DVD


Grotesquely surreal offering from Hungarian director Gyorgy Palfi charting three male generations of the same, bizarre family.

Told in seperate strands, the first follows Vendel (Csaba Czene), a WWII orderly consumed by lust, who passes the boredom by spying on women around the barracks and discovering that he has the ability to ejaculate flame.

His procreative endeavors produce a son, Balatony, (Gergely Trocsanyi) whose speciality is gluttony, seizing any opportunity to stuff himself to the limit.

Last in this degenerative family tree is Balatony's son Lajos (Marc Bischoff), a modern-day taxidermist intent on taking his career choice to its logical conclusion - himself.

Not for the squeamish.
