It's a fairy tale, don't even try to interpret it
6 February 2004 | by (Ottawa, Canada) – See all my reviews

This movie is a fairy tale in the same vein as Alice In Wonderland: extremely psychadelic and not interpretable -- so don't even bother trying to interpret it, there's no point. You drop down a rabbit-hole and life makes no sense anymore. Just sit back and enjoy the wierdness.
