Crows (1994, Poland)

Dorota KedzierzawskaWrona (pl. crow) is neglected by her feckless mother, laughed at by her classmates and furious with the world. So she steals a cute little girl to become a surrogate mother. She soon discovers just how hard being a parent really is. Kedzierzawska's remarkable film about a damaged girl trying to heal herself is tough yet tender, elevated by gorgeous cinematography and ultimately exhilarating.
