Toto the Hero is a fascinating Belgian film (in French with English subtitles) about an elderly man who is convinced that his life has been stolen from him. Specifically, he believes he was switched at birth with the little kid down the street--and has spent his entire life coveting the life he didn't have. Told in clever flashbacks and flashforwards, it looks at turning points in his life when, had he been with his real parents, things would have gone differently. If that sounds confusing, it's not; director Jaco Van Dormael keeps it crisp and easy to follow. Alternately darkly funny and tragic, it builds to a fascinating climax in which all is set right. --Marshall Fine
