Naturally, I was intrigued. I don't think I'd ever heard of "Nekromantik 2," so I wanted to see what the original film, "Nekromantik," was all about. Here's what came up when I did the amazon search:
I realize that "Nekromantik" probably isn't part of the "Father's Day Sale," and that the notice probably pops up every time you search for a dvd, but that still struck me as pretty funny. I want to meet the guy who's looking up "Nekromantik" on amazon, sees that Father's Day Sale notice, and says, "Oh yeah that's right- I need to get something for dad!"
Actually, scratch that, I probably don't want to meet that guy.
By the way, here's a little from the wikipedia entry on "Nekromantik." It looks like as charming a film about necrophilia as has ever been created, at least by a German:
He then returns to work and discovers his new obsession; a whole rotting corpse. It is discovered in a pond and during the removal process Rob absconds with it. He excitedly returns home to Betty like a husband returning with a romantic gift for his awaiting wife.
That's the least distasteful part of the synopsis, which is kind of hilarious I guess, in a "just-how-disgusting-can-we-make-this" kind of way, but somehow I don't think I'm missing anything by not watching it, despite the fact that "some believe that it is meant as a rather serious social commentary the denaturalization and dehumanization of contemporary society as a whole. [sic]"
But I wonder if my dad might like it?
