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

1 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If there was .5 in the ratings I would have chosen 6.5 - Therefore I gave it a 6 However, reading the first review I just had to interject. There are few movies and documentaries (but mostly documentaries) that would move me emotionally. This movie did just that. I felt the scenes justified the subject. Each scene gave me a moment to pause in my own emotional being and question death, life, living, dying. To be given a glimpse into what many have experienced, there are very few who have given us a window into that reality. It helped me a little to understand fear, but at the same time to rejoice and be extremely grateful for being alive. I think this subject is something everyone should ponder and if not, then they obviously are not willing to accept that death is a part of life. Someone giving this documentary a negative is their opinion and their prerogative of course, but then again, we all have mixed reactions when it comes to the inevitable don't we? Death certainly is a hard subject, especially when we consider our own!
