“This outrageous film is a visual feast of texture and sensuality. From the very first moment, tension can be felt in the small, wordless universe. The highly symbolic visual language reveals multiple layers of meaning. Biscuits turn into erotic symbols, and the viewer participates in the exploration of erotic desire. This film captures the curiosity of a child that discovers the sexuality of the parents. The power of this outstanding film lies in its brilliant synthesis of image, story, and sound, culminating in its strong ending.” – Waltraud Grausgruber
