Movie Reviewer says Odd Life of Timothy Green an odd trip into magical realism

The Odd Life of Timothy Green
 Movie Reviewer Andy McKinney says, "This odd trip into magical realism is a sort of Russian folk tale meets Disney.  A childless couple, in an act of wine influenced catharsis, writes down the characteristics that their perfect child would have had.  He would have a sense of humor, be artistic and musical but not very athletic and so on.  They put the notes in a box, then bury the box, and they hope their sadness in the back garden.  In true Disney fashion, that night a boy appears from the garden, their perfect son.  But in Russian folk tale tradition, he has a terrible, heart breaking secret."
