Movie Recommendation - "The Big Animal"

I just discovered a completely charming film -- a kind of adult fable or fairy tale -- called "The Big Animal." Without giving too much away, the movie centers on an aging Polish couple who discover a camel in their backyard while eating dinner one evening. Their choice to keep the exotic beast as a pet sets in motion a touching - and heartwrenching - series of events, as the couple's neighbors in their small village grow increasingly envious and greedy. Highly recommended!!
