quietearth [Film Festival 08.02.09] movie trailer news comedy drama

Having it's international premier at TIFF as part of the Midnight Madness lineup is quite appropriate considering the teaser we posted before and the new trailer are.. well, mad. While I found the below synopsis on IMDB written by "anonymous", this trailer still gives us no hint at what we're getting into. More weirdness from Hitoshi Matsumoto, writer/director of Big Man Japan. I'm really digging the angels coming out of the walls.

Here's the summary from IMDB:
A Japanese man wakes up alone in a brightly illuminated white room with no windows or doors. When he presses a mysteriously phallic protuberance that appears on one wall, a pink toothbrush materializes from nowhere, clattering to the floor and setting in motion a genuinely bizarre chain of events. Soon the imprisoned man is engaged in absurd and hilarious attempts to escape the gleaming room, releasing random objects from the walls, creating a life sized mouse trap game in which a rope, a toilet plunger and an earthenware jug full of sushi might just be the keys to his escape. Meanwhile, in a dusty town, a green masked Mexican wrestler known as Escargot Man prepares for an important match. His family gathers around him, worried about his seeming impassivity before battle.

It sounds not unlike Jim Henson's classic The Cube.
