"Controversial is the word..the film deals with questions of gender, isolation and desire...a mix of animation and live action, skilfully meshed, and it is VERY seductive. One of the most engaging aspects of the film is its honesty." Creative review
"A mixture of animation and live action, shot in an effective sepia hue, it mixes sex, birth and childhood trauma into a lyrical and often very funny whole." Blitz Magazine


Synopsis
