Utilising an old Czech folk tale, Svankmajer focuses on a barren couple who go to extreme lengths to become parents. Coming on like a cross between 'Eraserhead' and 'The Beast In The Cellar', Svankmajer's eye for a beautifully framed image is flawless for the first 20 minutes, but wears thin as soon as the overlong, repetitive story takes hold.
