The Grocer's Apprentice
After the dairy closes, the groceries take on a life of their own....
A grocer leaves his shop in the care of an errant assistant. Disillusioned and bored, she disobeys his orders to stay open and puts her feet up. With the grocer gone, the groceries erupt in a maelstrom of malevolent mess and her peace is shattered.
Loosely based on a Goethe poem that was also the inspiration for the Sorcerer’s Apprentice, the Indian-flavoured soundtrack brings to mind the magical broomsticks and buckets Mickey Mouse battles in Fantasia.
