2007 Oscar Submission from Hungary for Best Foreign Language Film

Official Selection, 2006 Toronto Film Festival

This visceral feast for the senses centers around three generations of vulgar men: a sex-starved soldier living on a remote outpost with only his lieutenant's large wife and beautiful daughters to distract him, his son Kalman, who grows to be a champion speed-eater, and Kalman's diminutive son, a taxidermist who transforms himself into a human art object.
