Storyline

A hunter in a remote and idyllic forest stumbles on a make shift tent fashioned from sheets of plastic and containing the mummified remains of a corpse. A detailed journal found on site reveals the man committed suicide by self-imposed starvation. Who was this man? Why did he kill himself in such a manner? Inspired by this true event and by the novella 'Until I Am a Mummy' by Shimada Masahiko, Insects sensuously evokes the mysterious man's last days. Written by Shannon Abel

I had never heard of this film before finding it on a internet rental service. I wasn't sure what to think of it after reading a little about it, But I ventured forward anyhow. Surprisingly ,I thought this was an amazing film. Based on part truth and part novella this was truly like poetry in film-work. The direction, writing, score, and editing were all one could ask for in such a piece. If you're a person that doesn't enjoy a "dead serious" film, you may not find this quite as interesting. Nevertheless, this film is a wonderful representation of a man's last days. After watching this film I am now certainly interested in checking out the novella and looking into the history behind what truth lies within. If none then I would be content just having the pleasure of watching this. I hope you find this film as enjoyable as I did. Happy viewing!!
