the Calamari Wrestler

A more or less po-faced remake of Rocky, with the Giant Squid in the role formerly played by Sylvester Stallone. Who can tell them apart, eh?

Can I get a transcript? Any bilingual Japanese Squid fanciers out there?

This wild comedy pokes fun at the world of pro-wrestling by placing its accomplished wrestler protagonist Koji Taguchi against a giant squid known as the Calamari Wrestler. The Calimari Wrestler not only proves to be Koji‘s most difficult opponent yet, but also has an effect on several people’s personal lives when he becomes the unlikely object of a young girl’s affection. A quirky plot, kitsch costumes, and a bizarre romance make director Minoru Kawasaki‘s (ULTRAMAN TIGA) effort an interesting and entertaining watch.
