It is the starting point for one of the most unique works in contemporary cinema, David Lynch's first feature and one of his followers' cult films. Produced with the support of the American Film Institute and friends of the director, it is the fragmented and hallucinatory story of Henry Spencer.
Henry lives in an industrial city, in an apocalyptic and ghostly setting. His girlfriend, Mary X, invites him to her parents' house for dinner one day, where Henry discovers that she has given birth to a mutant child. After a forced marriage, Mary X moves into Henry's apartment, but ends up abandoning him and the strange mutant creature that cries insistently at night. And let's not forget the woman who lives in the radiator and sings "In heaven everything is perfect" (the Portuguese title of the film when it premiered in Portugal) and the sexy neighbor who lives across the hall. in, Cinecartaz PÚBLICO
