Little Otik

Michelle picked a beauty with the Czech film Little Otik. It's about a man an a woman who are totally barren and who are obsessed with having a child. The man digs up a tree root in the backyard and fashions it into a baby boy doll for the woman, who totally and completely and redundantly accepts it as her very own real baby. That's the begining. The cinematography is beautiful, the actors are amazing, the story is pretty good, and on the whole it's really really good.
