2 October 2003 | by (montreal) – See all my reviews

A delightful piece to watch, although small, it lacks no dramatic impact at all. It tells a kingdom of can people whose peaceful life is disturbed by frequent coup-d'¨¦tat and subsequently the policy about what kind of fruit or vegetable should be stuffed into people's mind (the can): tomato, pepper, lemon and so on. As well-known phenomena of twenty century, mass are capable of following blindly their leader's capricious mind and doing absurd things when acting in such a collective consciousness. The notorious example of this maybe fascist Germany and militarism Japan but the reign under Stalin and Mao bear same characteristics. However, we should note that it is not actually the fault of the leader who is crazy or devil or satanic. The problem should be more correctly addressed to, deep inside people's mind, some unknown psychological weaknesses of average human being. Maybe this is the reason why some people watching this film feel uneasy.

Unlike 1984, with its nostalgic style, this film is more direct and compact and hilariously straightforward. To make people laugh is maybe the only good way to let them face this human disease. And we have to say this is really a good laugh, not by abusing others, which is the commonest form of jokes people enjoy, but by depicting earnest people doing foolish things.

The idea of can people is by itself very originative and throughout the film there are proves of artistic imagination everywhere. Two scenes impressed me: one rebellious guy being beaten to flat by policeman jumping onto him and a couple of lovers being carried away prior to their sexual attempt.
