A lonely scarecrow tries to befriend a group of birds without success, and he can't understand why they don't want to approach him. A blind wounded crow falls at his feet and the scarecrow takes care of it; through the bird he learns why the crows are afraid from scarecrows. After learning the news, he walks to his owner's house in the middle of the night, wakes him up, and asks him to give him another job. Little does he know that such an innocent request will bring what follows upon him. Written by
I really enjoyed this one at a short film-Festival. It's one of the rare short movies that you carry around with you for quite a while. The story is rather simple, comparable to a children's book or tale or - as the title suggests - to an old legend. The movie tells the story of a scarecrow that wants to fly with the birds. Of course the birds don't like scarecrows and neither do the people of the nearby village. So this is a sad story with a not-happy-but-all-right ending. I enjoy the look of this movie, it's a peculiar look somewhere between drawings for children's books, although there's not a hint of naivety in there, and the look of corpse bride.
I can only recommend this movie!
