Escape and release
22 July 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A grieving woman, Anne, leads an isolated, uneventful life consisting of work and living alone at home. A bird, that she keeps in her apartment, is her closest friend until it escapes.

She initially appears content with her mundane life but gradually she moves towards reintegrating with the world outside. We see her recovery and transition from the heaviness of loss to the lightness of the everyday life around her. A good idea for a story but poorly told in a film that fails to engage. We are kept at a distance from the main character and don't have much to observe, making it difficult to empathise with her.
