At first it was pretty difficult to tell what the point of all this was (Svankmajer's style is usually self-explanatory). Then the ending happened and I was pretty shocked I didn't see it coming. Rebellion of the inanimate objects is a go!
ah the synopsis spoiled the ending, but knowing what was going on gave the actions of the objects a nice ironic tone. although the leaves near the end were a tad confusing, along with the choice to deviate from stop motion in the final scene.
