Because I am a man, I feel that it might be somewhat inappropriate for me to attempt an interpretation of this animated film's abstruse images. They are quite clearly evocative of uniquely female experiences and innervations, so a male-perspective analysis could only be suppositious at best. That much being stated, I will comment that it is a relaxing, and quite visually palatial candy-colored adult fantasy, mindfully hand-animated in a post-psychedelic cartoon style quite telling of its period. Strongly implicit, and occasionally explicit, ASPARAGUS is probably best avoided by a button-down, easily offended viewership. Those of a more amenable outlook should find it, at the very least, quite intriguing.
