Halibut talks about the human effort of looking for a sense. It shows the kind of world in which we live using an allegory: we slide on the deepest abyss as fishes.
Men talk through their actions, their nonsense proffessions are an auto-definition of themselves.
Humans are beasts, dogs, monkeys, fishes.
There are no boundaries between man and beasts, we are all ruled by our natural instincts.
This is what makes human ugly, beats in society. We try to fit, to like, but doing so, we become beasts,, we lose the meaning of our human existence. The animal becomes absurd, senseless, ridicule.
We humans, are Halibut. Fishes who slide through the deepest abyss.
This film is not classic. It doesn’t want to tell a story but a point of view through an innovative cinematography. This film wants to say: We are all Halibut.
