    Easily the most genuine and horrifying Svankmajer feature, based on a czech folk tale.

    @the3rdman: You can tell from his short movies that he's fascinated by the act of eating but, indeed, here you get the pure overdose of slurping and smacking and it's ok because it's the matrix for the horror.

    Hilarious and thoroughly disgusting. If babies sometimes seem like horrible crying eating machines to you, you might connect well with this film. Not only is it a sort of black comedy on parenthood, it additionally seems to stand as a treatise on the aesthetically foul process of consumption. The most horrific thing for me were the many grotesque close-ups of mouths and nauseating food. Is there a name for that sort of horror? There ought to be. 4 years 7 months ago
