It harnesses the skewed workings of the subconscious, confirming Svankmajer as a master filmmaker and knocking films like 'Inception' and 'The Matrix' into a cocked hat.
A hit-the-ground-dead Freudian romp about an office worker's dream life.
The plot might have been better suited to a long-ish short, but Svankmajers outlandish imagination and visual metaphors conjure up an arresting animated universe in which dreams and reality co-exist.

The film interestingly and subversively takes its stand on the idea that dreams are the real thing; waking life is an exotic, strange tissue of unreal diversions.
One of the most imaginative and visually arresting films of the year. Essential viewing.
