Passing by Monestiraki

MR. Merde in Tokyo

The gibberish spewing violent creature known as "Mr Merde" brilliantly played by D. Lavant is certainly one of the most interesting characters to come out in the world of cinema since Gollum cursed those "fat little hobitsis". An excerpt of Leos Carax medium length film shows Lavant's mysterious figure, after being arrested, while his extravagant lawyer/follower interrogates him. Given that gibberish remains gibberish the audience as well as the Japanese authorities need to trust Le MaƮtre Voland (J.F. Balmer) and his interpretation. I highly recommend the segment as a whole but choose to post this part as a tribute to acting in gibberish.
