Aspergers and eating out – a surreal experience


Last year I wrote about my experiences/ordeals with Working Lunches!


This surreal short film, by Jan Svankmajer (1992), uses a number of metaphors to highlight the human condition.

  • I will leave this for you to discover for yourselves

But as far as I am aware, Autism was not an intended theme of this film.

However, it manages to capture quite accurately, how I often/usually experience the ritual of eating out.

  • The experiences portrayed are of course absurdly exaggerated
  • But it is a very good portrayal of the confusion and awkwardness that I often feel in a restaurant

    That movie kind of creeped me out. Lol! However, I still enjoyed the absurdity. 🙂
