From the director of Alice and Faust comes a most unusual boy...

Surrealist master Jan Svankmajer (Faust, Alice) brings a famous Czech legend eerily to life in the darkly hilarious cautionary tale of Little Otik. An ordinary couple, Karel and Bozena, are unable to conceive a child. When Karel digs up a tree root and whittles something vaguely resembling a human baby, Bozena's maternal longings transform the stump into a living creature with a (literally) monstrous appetite that can't be met with baby formula. Svankmajer brilliantly mixes his wicked humor with his subversive politics and love of mythology into a stunning live-action fable for our times.
