Kauwboy is a nice-looking and touching little film about an innocent and lonely boy who's facing tough times and seeks emotional shelter through a bond he makes with a baby jackdaw. He lives with his estranged father and dealing with the absence of his mother hasn't been easy for him.
The movie initially hides from the viewer some truths which are revealed as time passes, and meanwhile much prominence is given to the relationship the boy has with his secretly acquired new pet. Some lovely moments full of magic were in display and it's worth mentioning that child actor Rick Lens' performance was superb.
The soundtrack was nice and the way the film ended was proper and well done, and in general I definitely enjoyed the picture, but also I have to remark that the lack of consistency in tone detracted somewhat from the movie. The shifts in tone were a bit drastic; while at some points the action unfolds in the style of a children's film, at others it turned to a more emotionally intense tone that differed heavily from the rest in an odd way. Not that I didn't appreciate those important scenes which served to push forward the plot and character development, but I didn't like the lack of uniformity.
