ON TOP OF THE WHALE

Het dak van de Walvis

Trailer
Directed by Raúl Ruiz
Netherlands, 1982
Fantasy, Mystery

Synopsis

A parody of anthropology, linguistics, and cultural imperialism. The film follows an unlikely team of linguists into the wilds of an ersatz Patagonia to study the last speakers of a dying language. That language apparently consists of a single word, which therefore means everything.
