" Dark and glaucous, the first Lynch's average film is a good bridge between his first graphic essays and the surrealist world of Eraserhead. (21.02)"

A Complete review of David Lynch's work (26 movies items)

" What was it about? A young boy plants some strange seeds and they grow into a grandmother. My two cents: Personally, I consider this movie a rehearsal for 'Eraserhead' (pretty much like Akira Kurosawa considered a masterpiece such as 'Kagemusha' only a mere rehearsal for his ultimate masterpiece 'Ran'). Since I like experimental stuff, I enjoyed this flick but if you didn't like 'Eraserheard', you should probably avoid this one. Indeed, 'Eraserheard' is definitely weird but this short is "

"Surrealistisen elokuvataiteen kuluttajan märkä päiväuni. Lynch yhdistää absurdit animaatiot häiriintyneeseen musaan ja sekavaan symboliikkaan jo nuoremmalla iällään vakaalla kädellä, eikä tätä synkkää ja vaille iloa jäänyttä perhetragediaa voi olla ihastelematta samalla tavalla, kuin herran paremmin tunnettuja kokoillan tekeleitäkin."

"Absurdi teos, joka noudattaa Lynchin tyylille uskollisesti surrealistisia kaavoja. Omituinen teos kertoo nuoresta pojasta, joka ei kestä hulttiomaista isää eikä äitään ja haluaa kasvattaa siemenestä itselleen rakastavan ja hoivaavan isoäidin. Outouksia, mielenkiintoisia kuvakulmavalintoja, eriskummalista musiikkia ja tyylikästä animaatioita hyödyntyvä tarina on loppujen lopuksi hyvin teemallinen kuvaus lapsen pahoinpitelystä, lähimmäisyyden kaipuusta ja yksinäisyydestä."
