The Antman doesn't only make you sweat in you seat because of the scorching heat in the desert, but also because of the permanent tension between the actors with the very 'heavy' German language and, the seriousness and fun of the situations, supported with very appropriate supported music.

At the same time the film is pleasant to watch, with now and then a little thrill effect, to prevent you from smiling continuously during the runtime of the film. These constant contradictions of emotions make the film special. The Antman is not comparable with a similar theme of a transformed animal in the movie Fly.

Our war hero Don Jose is just married with Bella Bonita - a self assured city women, and returns to a completely isolated village in the Mexican desert. After their first passionate wedding night the major El Busto 'suggests' the new guests better leave, but Don José is determined to stay. You wonder why, because the inhabitants don't approach the couple with a lot of enthousiasm.

From his family members there's only his mysterious and not completely 'compos mentis' brother. His brother is only a little bit stranger than the other inhabitants. What happened to his father and mother?

In the queest for the secrets of the village, this B-film shows rather a lot of theme's as heroism, the closeness of a village, propagation and experiments with it, retaliation, weakness that becomes strongness and vice versa.

As time goes by, you wonder if the major is really the major, or is she just a puppet on a string?

From technical point of view I complement the director for the smart and modern changing of scenes.
