The film we saw was by Jan Švankmajer and was called Little Otik, a surreal story about a couple who cannot have children so the husband decides to dig a root up from the garden and it becomes their son. At first it appears to be unreal but with love and feeding the root begins to grow into a living killing machine that needs to be fed in huge quantities. Soon people go missing and the evil root cannot remain a secret no longer.
Of course there are some small snippets of animation as usual with many of his films. I found this scene below incredible when she is breast feeding the root baby! Completely surreal!
And some of the soup scenes and transitions are just the best...!
