It has been a very long time since I've seen this film but my memory of it is good seeing as in 1991 when I saw it I loved it sooo very much. The symbolism and the story and the acting were superb. Kelly Marcel was particularly excellent as the surly teenager fighting adult ignorance and misunderstanding of who she is (every teenagers plight: or so it seems). Basically this film echoed my own self-obsessed worries of the time and didn't really change them just made me more aware of them: which was nice. So if you ever get the chance to see this film: if it ever gets repeated (come on channel four!!!) watch it and savour the arty genius of this film. My only worry is that since I've grown up my perception of this film will alter. But all in all not a very big worry to have! Enjoy it if you can, and don't eat mushrooms!
