The film's unrestrained, anarchic visual imagination and grotesque poetry leave one in disbelief

It is safe to say there is nothing quite like TAXIDERMIA under the sun. Hungarian director György Pálfi's new film is a goulash of bodily fluids and perversity, a nearly unclassifiable visceral feast for the senses. This vulgar follow-up to Pálfi's surreal delight HUKKLE traces three generations of men who ejaculate fire, eat until they are morbidly obese and push the limits of ethical embalming. The film's unrestrained, anarchic visual imagination and grotesque poetry leave one in disbelief.

György Pálfi

György Pálfi was born in Budapest in 1974 and studied directing at the Academy of Drama and Film. His first feature, HUKKLE (2002), won numerous awards internationally. He has also directed the segment entitled Shaman vs. Icarus for the omnibus film A BUS CAME… (2003).
