Flora is a short stop motion film about a decaying creature made from vegetables

I've never empathized with a salad before until I watched this video. Flora by Jan Sevankmajer is a surreal stop motion film featuring a creature made from vegetables. The vegetables begin to decay at an alarming rate, with maggots galore. The poor vegetable creature has to lay there helplessly as it ripens and rots. A piece of advice: don't watch this video right before dinner. 

From Youtube:
