Svankmajer has to be one of the masters of czech cinema, a good
overview of his work can be found at http://www.illumin.co.uk/svank/ -
his films and animations, often a mixture of found objects, models and
people are surreal, stunning - the samorost piece reminded me
particularly of his version of 'Alice' (in wonderland) and his most
recent (to my knowledge) film 'Otesanek', whose main character, a tree
stump is brought to life by a childless couple. I can't recommend his
work enough :)

rough translation (i'm no expert, but i have a good czech dictionary!)
