twisted surrealist short takes the feeling of a bad day where nothing goes right and turns it into a scary, harrowing experience. got a bit panicky just watching it unfold.

Initially revolting, but it quickly gets into its rhythm. Is it an allegory for creative work? Life itself? No, secret police interrogations, imdb tells me.

it isn't really about anything particularly interesting unlike some other svankmajer shorts, but it's stilla pretty amusing account of someone's day just not quite going how they want it too.

Intricately fashioned 13-minute short that is kind of clever and surreal, but this viewer did not find it particularly amusing or interesting.

Mixing silent-film comedy with stop-motion surrealism is a good idea -- makes some of the slapstick gags more surprising (the element of Czech humour)

Very fun, fast-paced silent short, where the manic music melds perfectly with the bizarre stop-motion animated events of an evil room and the man trapped inside of it. It's funny and engaging throughout, but with that said, it didn't have much of a punchline, or attempted much of an allegory. It was plenty entertaining on its own, but nothing special, either.

A man is trapped in an apartment where nothing works the way he expects it to. And then there's the guy stroking a rooster. But really, it's good.

I'm usually a sucker for surrealism so I'm biased, but I enjoy the idea of a psycho apartment. And the end is classy as hell.
