For the benefit of anyone who just can’t get enough football over the next couple of weeks, or who is pining for another seafood-based sports drama, I draw your attention to Minoru Kawasaki’s Kani-Goalkeeper [follow this link for the trailer]. Kawasaki’s follow-up to his acclaimed The Calamari Wrestler is just another tale of a big crab who finds acceptance when his amazing goalkeeping abilities are revealed to the world. It’s one of the many films with a fabulous title and concept, which I haven’t seen, and which will no doubt disappoint when I do eventually see it. But for that intervening period, I’m glad that somebody took the time to make a movie about a giant decapod crustacean and his safe pairs of hands. According to its director, it’s “like Forrest Gump, but with a crab.” What’s not to like?
