Speakerman Reviewed
1 September 2010 | by (Vienna, Austria) – See all my reviews

This short film is not what you'd expect from the director of of the misanthropic ANATOMIA EXTINCTION and the arterial-spray epic TOKYO GORE POLICE. It tells the story of an odd creature (or is he a human mutant?) called the Speakerman, who served duty in a small mining village by sounding the siren/megaphone that is his head to tell the workers when it was time for lunch and to alert people in case of a mining accident. When the mine closes, Speakerman ends up lonely and in search of new friends and meaning in his life. The film plays like a warped fairy tale and is oddly affecting despite its weirdness. I'd even go so far as to recommend it as a film for children were it not for the climactic fight between Speakerman and a Cannibalistic Shushi Chef... SPEAKERMAN shows that Nishimura is capable of much more than just pumping geysers of gushing blood all over movie sets and is worth tracking down for people who are interested in watching something different.
