"Every now and then, a film comes along that is so original and made with such clear passion that it almost takes you a moment to catch your breath. Christiane Cegavske’s Blood Tea and Red String is precisely such a film" - Alexandra Heller-Nicholas, FANGORIA

"truly a beautiful work of art and a feast for the senses" -  Elizabeth Rios, FILM DAILY

"As much a work of sculpture as of cinema...this dark fairy tale is perfectly au courant, seamlessly in step, in its herky-jerky way, with the artisanal ethos, moody nostalgia and vogue for gothic motifs (skulls, taxidermy) rampant on the gallery scene." - Nathan Lee, NEW YORK TIMES

"A David Lynchean fever dream on Beatrix Potter lovingly crafted as it is unsettlingly sour-sweet" - Dennis Harvey, VARIETY

"Its haunting images speak directly to some dark, preverbal corner of the heart" - Maitland McDonagh, TV GUIDE'S MOVIE GUIDE

"Inspired by Czech surrealist Jan Svankmajer ("Little Otik"), with a tad of David Lynch thrown in... an original head trip" - V.A. Musetto, NEW YORK POST
