An imaginative lad of about ten has a couple of problems: he wets his bed, and his parents are abusive and disgusting. In a spare room, he finds a bag of seeds, which he plants in soil that he's placed in the middle of a single bed. The seed sprouts and grows into a grandmother, who's loving and approving. Life with his parents and with his imagination continues. Is a smiling grandmother enough to get him through?Written by
A short film well worth seeing for those interested in the Lynch oevre. The Grandmother is set in an eerily silent world, reminiscent of Eraserhead, which is punctuated by violent screaming. The stark contrasts throughout the film make for an unsettling experience. Recommended only for those hoping to uncover some secrets about David Lynch (whether you will find them or not is highly questionable!)
