Surreal, allegorical and truly bizarre, "Themroc" is a film in which no intelligible words are spoken. Plenty of grunts, howls, barks and shouts, but no real "dialogue" in the usual sense.
A fifty-ish man (Michel Piccoli) drops out of the daily grind, and adopts the life of a barbaric primitive. He converts his second-floor apartment into a cave with a view, blocking off the doors, destroying the outer wall and happily tossing all his belongings to the ground below. He picks up a couple of cavegirl converts along the way, and gradually begins to win over his whole neighborhood. Better luck next time, civilization!
"Themroc" seems nonsensical at first, but turns more watchable once its thematic thrust becomes clear. Still, the film is longer than it needs to be, and some folks will find it as interesting as (ahem) watching cement dry. It's a must-see for cannibalism fans, however.
Subversive and bizarre anarchist fantasy where incest, murder, cannibalism, among other ways to break free are instructed by a construction worker who gets tired of his aimless and repetitive existence, and the repression exercised by authorities. That once shy and submissive man is now the leader of some kind of urban cavemen community that only seek to give and receive the most primitive forms of pleasure.
There's no dialogue whatsoever, only a series of grunts, yells and gurgles without sense; that serve to establish even more the meaning of disorder inherent in the plot.
