The ruler in this story brimming with black humour has no time for dreams. The protagonist, King Wurm, outlaws all that is fantastic and wonderful in his realm and denies artists their creative rights. The people rise up against the tyrant and King Wurm loses his head. But his brain is rescued, and he is fitted out with a new and highly ingenious robotic body. The film is based on the surrealist story of the same name by Dutch writer Belcampo, a future fantasy full of medical curiosities, fusing dream and reality. Website
