THE MAN WHO ATE THE WORLD

Johannes Suhm | 2020 | 80 MINS
Germany | Subtitles
‘What does a perfect life look like? Do I want too much? Am I too greedy?’ These are perhaps the central questions posed by Johannes Suhm in his impressive adaptation of a 2009 stage play about a corrosive and ambivalent father-son relationship.

In Detail

This is a story about male hubris, repressed feelings, unconscious depression and the hard struggle for success in a world where fragility has no place.

At times painful to watch, the film is carried by energetic direction, gritty photography and outstanding performances. One concludes that in circumstances such as those experienced by the principals, the answer to questions two and three is ‘Yes’. Above all, redemption is hard won.
