Taxidermia: One Bizarre And Shocking Universe

Taxidermia, the second full-length feature film by Hungarian director György Palfi. The Tag line for the movie is, Three stories. Three generations. Three men. One bizarre and shocking universe. It was released August 23, 2006 in France and has since been released on a very limited basis around the world. Imdb says the movie was released July 17 in the U.S. The movie is built around three generations of a family whose members are bound by a particular relationship to the body, Taxidermia tells the story of a lustful aide-de-camp in search of love; his son, the champion of a sport consisting of swallowing the greatest quantity of food in record time; and his grandson, a taxidermist in search of immortality.~ I have seen at least 3 different posters for this movie so do be surprised if you see multiple ones.
