I have a Hungarian friend who always complained that the cardboard cutouts of the speed-trap policemen in Hungary were short and fat compared to their Austrian superman-esque counterparts. I never forgot this accusation of negative self-perception and I wonder if that was the basis of this film. This is about three generations of a family who's main character is a speed eating champion and lives in a world where being thin is to be weak. The first part of the film concerns his conception which is totally messed up and pretty disturbing but very funny. The middle, about his career and love-life, also some of the most twisted filmmaking ever, and finally about his relationship with his thin son who is a taxidermist. The end part is a little slow but well worth the wait for the ending. Despite being disturbing, funny, and bizarre, the whole film is made very stylishly with some excellent direction. This film should be a lot more famous than it is. I guess this is down to the fact that it's in the Hungarian language, which, by the way, is one of the most interesting languages I have ever come across, with loads of hilarious phrases and put-downs. I found this to be extremely original but a Hungarian friend was not of the same opinion. aparently there a lot of films like this from Hungary, which I will now be searching for.
