A hopeless man stranded on a deserted island befriends a dead body and together they go on a surreal journey to get home.
Swiss Army Man is an unusual and unique film, it’s like nothing I’ve ever seen before. Who would have thought a film with a farting corpse would turn out to be a lovely, heart-warming, and adventurous movie. Swiss Army Man is creative, original and absolutely hilarious, you’re in for a treat if you decide to give it a watch.
A hopeless man Hank (Paul Dano) is stranded on an island just when he is about to give up he sees a body wash up on shore. Hank investigates this body and it turns out to a be a farting corpse named Manny (Daniel Radcliffe). Hank realises Manny is special, and actually very useful, he befriends him and together they go on an amazing and extraordinary adventure to get home.
I adore Swiss Army Man it is funny, odd and wacky, surprisingly, it’s also soulful and has a lot of heart. Paul Dano and Daniel Radcliffe are underrated actors, and they got a chance to shine in this film; They both deliver great and wonderful performances. Radcliffe portrays an inquisitive farting corpse who continuously asks Hank absurd questions which made the conversations in this film amusing and sweet. Swiss Army Man provides an amazing film experience with its catchy score, beautiful cinematography and odd premise. It may not be for everyone however, if you can get on board with the strange concept it will be a film you will probably enjoy.
Swiss Army Man’s uniqueness, creativity and humour is what makes it refreshing. You don’t see many original films like this, and I’m glad Swiss Army Man exists. If you are looking for something original or weird to watch then I highly recommend Swiss Army Man.
