Jojo, a lively 10-year-old with a difficult home life marked by a volatile father & an absent mother, finds solace in an abandoned baby jackdaw. Through the special friendship he builds with the bird, the wall between him & his father will be brought down. Written by
In an era when many movies are just re-hashes of other movies this little production distinguishes itself. Very watchable. Touching. Engaging. Real. Anyone who has known loss way too soon in life will identify. The lead actor has real talent. You quickly forget you're watching an actor, so natural is his performance. And the directing distinguishes itself as well. It's said never work with animals or children, or animal-like children (hey, he growls and bites!). But the performance coaxed out of this young talent is notable. And I can't imagine working with a bird was any easier. Kudos all around And please do watch it until the very end for a very special scene.
