Storyline

A thin child of about 10, nicknamed "Crow" because she mimics the bird, has no friends and rejects a teacher's hug. At home, she is left on her own, her mom locks her out while entertaining a lover or is asleep. One morning, Crow sees a chubby, cherubic child hugged by both parents as the father leaves for work. When the toddler is left alone, Crow lifts her through the fence and kidnaps her. That day, Crow tries to mother the child, alternately playing with and scolding her, taking her to the beach, leaving shore in a boat, pushing her into the sea in a pique, and eventually carrying the sleeping child back home. Crow returns to her own mother and asks for affection. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Some strange games which children play.
11 September 2008 | by (FIPRESCI/Cinema of the world) – See all my reviews

Dorota Kedzierzawska is a fresh voice of Polish cinema.In most of her films one can discern an element of truth which is close to reality. A vast majority of her films are based on events which have happened in real life.It is for this reason that we see a mix of documentary as well as fiction in her films.Although her film "Wrony/Crows" features children as its protagonists,it should not be construed as a film for children as grown ups too have a lot to learn from it.At the core of this melancholic film is a little imp who is neglected by her family. How she takes revenge on grown ups by kidnapping a young girl remains the crux of the screenplay.Dorota Kedzierzawska has directed her film with great charm and ingenuity using a multidimensional perspective where both the kidnapped kid as well as her juvenile kidnapper are given equal attention.It is very rare for an European film to deal with touchy issue of motherhood.Crows is one of the few films which handles such a tricky issue in a deft manner.
