The movie tells the story of a puppeteer (played by John Cusack), who can not find succes with his rather odd passion, despite having great skills.
The concept itself, a puppeteer who literally finds a portal into the mind of actor John Malkovich, is perhaps the most original Ive ever heard and gladly, Im able to say the film itself is only more of the same.
