Storyline

In this dark comedy inspired by the medieval fantasy genre, an immortal idiot is chosen to champion the bored Gods of Mount Olympus. Poor Throg, ever the optimist, stumbles through history, leaving a trail of comic carnage in his wake. Along the way, he meets talking pigs, Arthurian knights, evil clowns, and the sadistic green man of the forest. Are his stories the ravings of a deranged lunatic, or will he truly achieve his "density?" Only time will tell. Written by Anonymous

Captivating but demanding
17 May 2006 | by patrik-72See all my reviews

I couldn't help myself, but this movie had something oddly fascinating and charmingly captivating, and forced me to watch it all through. Although i'll admit it took me however 3 days while having to take some intermediate breaks to recharge, to be able to renew accommodation for the constant overflow of the movie.

It is an overflow of absurdities and irony, but the script writers are obviously talented in making fun of all genres although it may be a little unclear and on the Verge of too abstract of a storyline at times, i feel the overall red line is clear at the end. It gave me the same feeling as old time splatter movies, but with a much more intelligent storyline with many twists.

Watching this movie felt like being together with an overly enthusiastic girlfriend that gives u no room of personal space and isolated contemplation to think, but is full of charm and u just can't deny access to her/it, because she "is" with her heart. You just have to slip away quietly and do your own thing to be able to return with full energy and equally shared enthusiasm.

If u watch this movie the right way, that u get not burnt out, I think it's either a love it , or hate it experience. I loved it :)
