Kolya (Kolja), Czech (♦♦♦♦)
This movie is not meant to be funny; the humor is very subtle but it makes you laugh out loud nonetheless. The child is so cute, and his plight so believable that it’s hard not to feel sorry for him. I found so funny that Kolya learned how to draw coffins, because that’s what he got to see all the time while Louka worked, and the child started drawing other things as soon as he was exposed to different experiences. This film won a Golden Globe and an Academy Award to the Best Foreign Language Film in 1997. Well deserved, I say!
