Synopsis

Very few movies attempt to capture the mundane emptiness of life. Fewer still manage to succeed. “Tapeworm” does both.

Sure, there are characters here doing something, but it doesn’t really matter what and where. What matters is that they are stuck, overwhelmed by life and their own seemingly insurmountable fears. They could drown in their sorrows, only there isn’t a drop of water anywhere.

Directors and screenwriters Milos Mitrovic and Fabián Velasco have crafted a fascinating debut filled with dry observational humour that talks about so-called losers in a fresh and honest way.

This film is either for you or it’s really not. There is no middle ground with “Tapeworm”.
