Aragón’s ‘Paper Birds’ draws at heartstrings

Paper Birds

As a performer who has been able to capture the pulse of the audience on both television and cinema, Emilio Aragón (full name Tomás Aragón Emilio Alvarez) sure knows how to connect with the emotions of his audiences. His debut feature film, “Paper Birds” (original Spanish title: “Pajaros De Papel”) provides ample proof of it.

Featured in the First Films World Competition of the 34thMontreal World Film Festival, where it shared the audience award with “The Day I Was Not Born” (original German title: “Das Lied in Mir”, which won the Fipresci prize), by another debutant director Florian Cossan, “Paper Birds” unabashedly pulls at the viewers’ emotional heartstrings.

The way it does so while portraying the relationship between a kid and his father-like figure who has lost his son and wife during the Spanish Civil War, makes one immediately compare it with Roberto Benigni’s much-awarded international hit »
