One Potato Review

What starts out a little bit Beckett (a wall, a sign, the curving earth) turns into an accounting of one girl’s reluctance about the when’s, where’s, and how’s of growing up, though mercifully not the why’s. Maybe there are dragons There (good), maybe no Teddy bears (bad), maybe much knowledge (not clear), but there do appear to be a lot of kind of boring-looking corporate types getting blown There by their umbrellas, so maybe you’d rather choose Elsewhere – for now – where you can be pretty much anything you like. Scenic and sane, with simple, playful text that will probably ring a bell for even the youngest of existentialists.
