Help with name of obscure films

I remember seeing a strange foreign film a couple of years ago (Polish, I think) about a couple who couldn't conceive, so the female starts to mother a tree branch, which starts talking and having a mind of its own. Any takers?

Another one I remember is a comedy from the Netherlands or perhaps Sweden, about a family reunion, or gathering of some kind. It's a pretty recent one.

Kind of flimsy, I know, but if anything sparks, please let me know.

Many thanks!!!

Little Otik by Jan Svankmajer. He's a Czech filmaker. That's the first one.

The second one might be Up And Down. It is also Czech.

Little Otik is dead on. I'm not sure about Up and Down. I checked it out on IMDB and it didn't look right, but I've been wrong before. Thanks!!!

Up and Down is a nice Czech comedy about raising a baby (a real one)
