The Calamari Wrestler

2005 NR

A gargantuan squid (Osamu Nishimura) who's captured the hearts of wrestling fans everywhere by winning the championship becomes the object of a sweet young woman's (Kana Ishida) affection. But when other sea creatures start gunning for his throne, he must defend his supremacy. The title alone should give clear indication that viewers are in for one eccentric ride with Minoru Kawasaki's hilarious directorial effort.
