A Victorian surgeon rescues a heavily disfigured man who is mistreated while scraping a living as a side-show freak. Behind his monstrous facade, there is revealed a person of intelligence and sensitivity.
A marksman living in exile is coaxed back into action after learning of a plot to kill the President. Ultimately double-crossed and framed for the attempt, he goes on the run to find the real killer and the reason he was set up.
I saw the antman at the fantasy film fest and was totally surprised. What on earth was the director thinking - this is a truly fun movie. Something you can't say about Germany films in general. The story takes place in Mexico in the strange and deserted village Campo del Sol. Mexican war hero Don Jose (Götz "is-he-sexy" Otto)takes his just married wife home to meet the family - but there is none. Only strange people, like the major (Elisabeth Volkmann) who swares and sings all the time and is married to an indian (Goiko Mitic) - what a great casting! On the other side of the street lives a totally luny man, who turns out to be a mexican super bad guy. A man who wants to cross ants with humans - and he picks the heros wife. Does it sound like the plot to a B Movie. It sure is, but one with a lot of fun and singing. This is new in German cinema - we need more of that. Sit back and enjoy the antman and sing along.
