Plus Svankmajer's Food

In this latest offering by the great Czech surrealist filmmaker Jan Svankmajer, modern-day Prague is the setting for the story of six ordinary if somewhat seedy individuals who, with almost no dialogue, obsessively and painstakingly prepare their sexual "feasts."

Like fastidious but inspired chefs, they concoct - with the aid of the most eclectic array of objects, animals, devices and processes - an orgasmic meal of hilarious and literally explosive results.A postwoman, shopkeeper, television presenter, detective and two odd apartment dwellers secretly plunder and pillage their environments in search of their magical ingredients.

As their solitary paths crisscross, we see how Svankmajer condenses the sexual, the social and the political in a society still breaking with the habits of a sexually puritanical past.Svankmajer relates it all with mischievous misanthropy and a brilliant array of live action filmmaking, special effects and animation techniques.

Also Included:
Food:Svankmajer at this hilarious best, cooking up a woderful three-course meal out of clay.Includes grey-suited men as human vending machines, a couple at dinner devouring a restaurant and a tour of a cannibalistic banquet.
