Sweet and well-animated, but with a strong dollop of morality
7 September 2001 | by See all my reviews

If you don't mind the ethical message and religious overtones thrown in your face, Song of the Birds has some really sweet stuff worth seeing. A young boy thrilled with his new gun shoots a baby bird. When the bird falls down dead, our dear boy is horrified with what he's done, and prays to God to make things right. I won't give away the oh-so hard to guess ending, but happiness abounds and a lesson is learned by all. Some might be turned off by the sappiness, but the animation is fantastic and the characters are all extraordinarily appealing.
