SHORT TAKES

Taxidermia


Taxidermia

Director: Gyorgy Palfi

Language: Hungarian

Director Gyorgy Palfi's followup to his quirky debut film, "Hukkle," challenges the stomachs of viewers with an avalanche of bizarre images as three men obsess about their bodies in extreme ways. They're all from different generations in a Hungarian family: A sex-starved orderly (Csaba Czene) during World War II, a speed-eating champ (Gabor Mate) under communism, and a gaunt taxidermist (Marc Bischoff) in the present-day. It's visually dazzling, but its grim humor and some disturbing scenes may upset some.
