Twilight Of The Cockroaches A messy bachelor’s apartment is a paradise for the huge colony of cockroaches living there: no sprays, no traps, and plenty of food. When the homeowner’s girlfriend moves in, however, the party comes to an abrupt end, and the roaches must quickly adapt to a life of struggling for survival. Combines animation with live actors.
Great movie for a quiet afternoon
Quite a good cartoon movie for a quiet reflective Sunday afternoon.
I don’t know how many people realize that there are quite a few WW2 references, from the Japanese perspective. WW2 was clearly still a relatively recent and very traumatic experience for the writers and/or their immediate family. Some of the people who worked on this movie were probably survivors of fire bombings and perhaps even nuclear bombings, and it shows. Not to mention battle-hardened “Kurt” as the ally and aggressive military commander for the cockroaches.
Interesting twist to have the cockroaches as the ones with essentially “human” experiences and emotions, and the actual humans as non-verbal giant powerful titans, almost forces of nature, from the cockroaches’ perspective.
If you can get over the fact that this is a movie about cockroaches, it’s quite good.
