Movie Summary

Rating:
Not Available
Taxidermia is a bizarre multi-generational black comedy directed by Gyorgi Palfi. As the film begins, military orderly Morosgovanyi Vendel (Csaba Czene) is suffering through a miserable existence as a virtual slave to Lieutenant Oreg Balatony Kalman (Gabor Mate). Living next to the latrine, Vendel escapes reality by drifting into fantasy. The fantasies become so real and oddly ambiguous that at one moment Vendel impregnates the Lietenant's wife only to "wake-up" and find himself sodomizing a dead pig. When the Lieutenant finds out, he kills Vendel and raises the son, Balatony Kalman (Gergely Trocsanyi), as his own. As the story continues, Balatony Kalman becomes a Hungarian speed eating champion and marries team-mate and fellow speed eating champion Aczel Giz (Adel Stanczel). Aczel gives birth to son Balatony Lajoska (Marc Bischoff). When he grows up, Lajoska becomes a professional taxidermist. Kalman and Giz eventually become so grotesquely obese they can no longer leave their tiny apartment. Kalman, however, treats his son Lajoska so harshly that the son eventually leaves him to his own devices. When Lajoska returns, seeing what has happened to his father will change him forever. Strangely engaging, this black comedy draws watchers into this dark and depraved world.moreless
