Cannibalism isn’t a topic for everyone. Edmond, however, presents an interesting twist on the concept by portraying the cannibal, or rather potential cannibal, as experiencing social anxiety about his urges. More a curiosity than the homicidal instinct it usually becomes, cannibalism becomes something more personal, and strangely enough, intimate.

Edmond Is Cannibalism’s Soft Side

Edmond’s characters come to life with a felt-like material, and just a hint of standard animation for effect. The soft, almost inviting production helps bring out the film’s subtle surrealism. Charming might not be the word to describe this film, but it isn’t entirely incorrect. It’s definitely an interesting take on cannibalism, and a fascinating look at what could be going on in the minds of more people than you think.
