What Jan Svankmajer was going for when he created "Flora" seems to be largely a mystery. The film is not even a minute (only 30 seconds) has no title card introducing it, but merely consists of an animation of a person made out of fruits and vegetables in the process of decay. The craft seems polished enough, but it still seems that the film is unfinished, a scrap of animation Svankmajer later published by itself that may have been part of a larger project. Either that or it was merely an exercise in timelapse - although a rather solid one at that. Granted, it's hard to really judge something like this, but it is unique and interesting...even if hardly something one would show another as an introduction to the work of this Czech master.
