Storyline

Based on a true story set around turn-of-the-century France, it follows the lives of two men: Joseph Pujol and Dr. Marcel Baudouin. Pujol was an entertainer at the Moulin Rouge who was gifted with a unique backside, which could take in and release air in measured increments thus producing amazing and humorous noises. Dr. Baudouin was obsessed with Joseph's "instrument" and pursued him doggedly for many years, ultimately resulting in his undoing. Written by Steve Ochs

Gloriously Ridiculous!
1 December 2005 | by (santa monica) – See all my reviews

This short film is truly a spectacle from start to finish. Deftly handled by first-time Director Steve Ochs, cast and crew present an absurd story in such a straight-faced manner I was left scratching my head while roaring with laughter.

For a "small film" this had a huge feel with costumes and performances worthy of a full-length epic. The majestic score fit perfectly with the pseudo seriousness of the film.

I wish the story spent more time with Le Petomaine's early club experiences, but perhaps a longer version may go deeper into this dark and dank area.

I give this movie a big latex covered thumbs up!
