tHe CaLaMari WreStLer  |  Ika resurā

JApan 2004  |   director: KAWASAKI Minoru 

This satiric movie with Kafkaesque feeling offers many absurd situations. The director Kawasaki Minoru reflects with subtle irony the world of professional wrestling. The Calamari wrestler is romantic story of passion, fear; will for win and desire for happiness.

The director in the movie says: “If a Japanese wrestler will win over ten legged monster, like you Calamari, Japanese will find confidence to believe, to believe in themselves, to believe that they will be able to deal with threats of modern world

such as terrorism, population aging or animal viruses. when Japanese wrestler Gōdōzan knocked out American wrester at the end of the occupation era, it gave impulse to recreate national confidence and to restart economic growth.” On the other hand the chairman of wrestling association disagrees with him by saying: “Today Gōdōzan will be hoping for a society that can overcome prejudices - and we can help it. If it is a real wrestler, we should be able to overcome the fact whether it is a calamari or al human being and focus on the match. It is up to us whether wrestling will be only for show or real sport again....”
