Jonas Wolcher has taken yet another step forward in his development as a film maker. Cannibal Fog is a really interesting little gem.
I know that I will get beaten if I tell what inspiration I think lies behind this film. First of all I want to mention Marian Doras wonderful film Cannibal. "Du bist mein fleisch". Cannibal Fog is far from a copy of this film but you have a bit of the feeling hanging over you in combination with... Now I'll get beaten... Sergio Leones Once Upon a Time in the West. I know. It's two genres as far from each other as you can get, but the feeling, the tempo. The unavoidable journey through Linus fall guided by Malte. The film has different layers in form of the odd relation between Linus and Malte but also the controversial phenomenon of cannibalism in our modern society.
I must say that Jonas have been walking on a thin line here but managed to stay on it and not fall. I can recommend this film but don't see it as only yet another action. Try to follow the dark satire and the dark humor.
