Blood Tea and Red String

I'm not quite sure how to describe Blood Tea and Red String. It's a delicate, fantasy, stop motion adventure ... sweet, stomach turning, trippy, bittersweet, charming and heartfelt. I'm thankful for filmmakers like Christiane Cegavske who aren't afraid to let their imaginations run wildly and freely no matter if we completely understand it or not.

I think Dennis Harvey from Variety sums up the film best ... "a David Lynchean fever dream on Beatrix Potter terrain ... as lovingly crafter as it is unsettling sour-sweet."
