Synopsis:
Renegade filmmaker Khavn turns traditional Filipino values on their head in this surreal and taboo-shattering allegory about a family that dines exclusively on soil. Her birthday fast approaching, the baby wishes that for once her family could have a normal meal as her big sister has group sex on camera while pining for their wholesome next-door neighbor. Meanwhile, their gangster big brother commits a heinous act of murder before seeing his best friend killed and being pursued by the police; dad injects hospital children with experimental chemicals; mom peddles drugs and hookers on a seedy cable television show; and grandpa is a zombie.

Bizarre ''brown'' comedy from the Philippines
by juggalo_dvd (Netherlands)
I saw this movie from Filipino rebel Khavn, on the Roterdam Film Festival 2005. The audience hated it, were insulted even, probably because of the occasional brutal violence and sex. but I liked this movie a lot.

It''s about a family that, as the title says, eats soil. this can be seen as a metaphor for the strong family bonds in the Philippines. The family from the title also engage in several criminal activities, such as selling drugs and even murder.

The movie is bizarre from the opening credits on, where we see a clay animation of a violent rape and killing. The atmosphere in the rest of the movie is pretty dark, but it''s still a comedy. Because of the soil eating, the movie is even referred to as brown comedy.

If your into the really bizarre, and are curious about Filipino cinema, try to see this movie. Or another film from it''s director Khavn. It''s quite a unique experience.
