I truly don't know squat about aa settings, but maybe try 0.3 - which seems
standard.

Get rid of crand.  _Especially_ if you're doing an animation.
Diffuse seems a bit high, I might be tempted to add a touch of specular
(0.1-0.2), but that's inconsequential to your problem.

That seems - excessive?  Especially for a simple render.
And it might have something to do with the weird look.
Just use a standard point light source, and you'll get adequate lighting and
good shadows.

Hard to really say what other potential problems may be without seeing the scene
as a whole.   You can post .pov files in the scene files section if the above
doesn't fix anything.
