- Director: Bernardo Zanotta
A short film that should have been shorter!
Too much of nothing, too much repetition...not enough filmmaking talent!
A cannibal drama in which the actors play unfinished characters, often unsure of who they are on and off screen: a closeted gay man, his mother and his lover caught between the anxiety and pleasure of castration.
The film delves into the life of Armin Meiwes, a computer repair technician from Rotenburg, Germany, who in 2001 devoured Bernd Brandes, an engineer from Berlin. Departing from documentary, theatrical, and archival practises, the film re-enacts the infamous case by connecting it to televised and home video cultures from the late 90s.
