Audience Reviews for Lampa (The Lamp)


You might think that a glimpse into a toy store after hours might be fun and nostalgic, but, as demonstrated here, it can be a nightmare. This is a surreal and creepy as shit little short film. I'm seriously freaked out right now...probably just as I'm supposed to be...

A sort of nostalgic exhibition inside a toy store. Polanski proved he could accomplish a total dominion of space.
