I thoroughly enjoyed this short, although some may not.
27 October 2001 | by (NJ, USA) – See all my reviews

I found the images to be insightful, and was glad to see that the director was not afraid to portray the feminine in depth. It's very hard to explain, since this short is an abstract, but I enjoyed it thoroughly. Some people may be uncomfortable with the overt sexual imagery, though, especially the scene in the garden.
