    Velhas catadoras de lixo encontram uma menina viciada em tricô. A partir daí, segue uma jornada pelo subconsciente das velhas, representado pelos objetos que elas catam. A criança traz de volta à juventude e a possibilidade de sair do ciclo vicioso. O tricô, atividade feminina considerada pacífica e inútil se torna o grande meio de ação pelo qual as personagens ganham domínio sobre sua própria vida. Tricotar é criar vida. Grande sacada dessa trama surreal.

    This is essentially an absurdist Japanese Fairy Tale. Not everything always entirely makes sense but it's made quite obvious that it really isn't meant to. It's a very odd little film that packs a quarter-ton of whimsy in a 100-pound bag.

    What a lovely refreshing original movie. Surreal,eccentric and tangential in nature. Visually stunning and do get the dolby surround sound out for the quirky musical score.

    Wow... Um. This was so crazy-awesome! Very weird, and pretty confusing. Just when it begins to make some sort of sense, the film ends! A very fun little flick...

    This is the kind of moviemaking and atmosphere are not often available out there, a thrilling ride that reminds me of some of my favorite films, such as "The Taste of Tea". Highly praised and recommended!

    A weird one. Two old Japanese sisters collect special (to them) unwanted things from the town and store them in their bursting-at-the-seams mansion and then draw coloured pictures of them. One day they find they've inadvertently also brought home a wild and noisy knitting girl (called Knit-Again) who starts unravelling their neat and orderly lives. A little like Angela Carter with her feminist subversions of fairy stories, and a little like Hausu for being so strange. And a little like nothing I've seen before. The plot is cryptic and light as a feather, so you may get bored waiting for an exposition that never comes, or you may, like me, just enjoy the journey and the uniqueness of the whole thing. Highly recommended. <img src="http://kayteterry.typepad.com/.a/6a00e54ecd94e58833010536b25bbe970c-pi">

    Very weird and absurd, but it's also very moving. Also, there's an amazing animated sequence that shouldn't be missed.
