Little Otik

Jan Švankmajer

Czech Republic / United Kingdom / Japan
2000, 127'

Jan Švankmajer’s affection for fairy-tale characters of macabre tones is present in this adaptation of a Czech folklore story, between Pinocchio and the Little Red Riding Hood, about a couple desiring to have a baby who find an anthropomorphic trunk that turns out to possess an insatiable hunger. The consequences turn out to be eccentric, yet still (very darkly) humorous.
