sweet meat
12 May 2009 | by (belgium) – See all my reviews

this short film was really beautiful, it's romantic and it's funny. the two main meat characters are so cute you immediately love them without doubt. the dance (and the sort of movie this is) draws clear parallels between Meat Love from Jan Swankmajer and Un Chien Andalou from Luis Bunuel and Salvador Dali. there's no actual story, but the way Svankmajer filmed everything is so cute you just can't say no to watching this over and over again. it lasts less than a minute, so it's quite possible to watch this over a hundred time in less then two hours. I really liked it, the meat was sweet. the ending, however, made me sad.
