The reason why I watched this was because my tutor at my college wanted us to watch it. It is a mixture of live action and stop-motion animation.

I was expecting something more distressing, but there was a nice quite placid feeling throughout the film. Original idea (I understood it's from a fairy tale), and I liked the animations.
The sound bothered me at some points, it didn't quite match all the scenes, but not too disruptive.

"10.3. (DVD) Svankmajer on vetänyt taas jotain poppamieskirjan avulla metsästä löytämiään yrttejä Little Otikia väsäillessään. Hedelmättömän pariskunnan vauvakuumeinen nainen esittää raskasta tunkemalla paitansa sisään tyynyjä päästäkseen hoivaamaan mökkiin jemmaamaansa puunukkea. Yhdeksän kuukauden jälkeen puukloppi alkaakin äkisti elämään, aiheuttaen pian ongelmia valtaisalla ruokahalullaan sekä mieltymyksellään eritoten lihaa kohtaan. Lapsen hoidon ohella t"

"DIR: Jan Švankmajer Country: Czech Republic The start is really wacky and the first half overally enjoyable but the film is too long, you get bored while the film gets predictable eventually. "

" Little Otik is a bizarre, sometimes dark, and often hilarious tale from Czech director Jan Svankmajer. It's the kind of film that resists summation, in that any attempt to reveal what it's about would only be met with eye-rolls and various forms of "um...okay, whatever"-s. It simply needs to be seen. The stop-motion animation used here is not only a delight, but the only form of visual storytelling that would suit this material. I will grant that at 126 minutes, the film is longer than it p"
