Part of a compendium of short stories, this shows that Ken can produce totally uninspired fare to order. Those who rate the earlier masterpieces such as "The Devils" or "Women in Love" will be very disappointed with this pointless offering about a sadly sex-starved male and a woman using a breast pump. Pointless, tasteless and very silly with an extraordinarily camp performance from Hetty Baines who did much better than this in the 'Bax' film.

You should ask yourself why anyone would eat vegetables in such a lascivious and messy way. Beats me, anyway! For a good shortie see "Aria" where Ken actually uses his talent!
