Absurdity and reality too mixed up
10 January 2013 | by erwintimmermanSee all my reviews

I can see how this story works very well as a children's book. But as a film I did not like it very much.

The plot has too many loose ends. For example, after the elderly couple have found the girl, they put her in a pram and take her for a walk. Many villagers look in awe at the beautiful baby. No one wonders how they have got her.

After the girl has flown away and the couple go after her, the journey starts and they encounter many absurd situations. Too absurd to take the story seriously, but too absurd to be funny as well.

Some serious and engaging story lines, such as a girl who is neglected by her hard working father, are suddenly cut off without a real resolution.

The couple acts too odd to be believable. As they go after their flown away girl, i did not even feel much sympathy for them.

On the positive side, the bird girl herself is very adorable. But not adorable enough to save the movie.

As a whole, I found the movie rather boring. More importantly, my 5 year old son found it boring as well. He did not want to watch the rest of the movie after about 30 minutes, so I watched the end by myself.
