Colin, an ambitious young New York finance executive, needs to clinch a deal with a wealthy Dubai sheik, who has a weakness for pigeon racing. They make a bargain: the sheik will sign if Colin can get him a particular pigeon, the perfect bird to win the prestigious Barcelona international race. This bird has been trained in Flanders, but the owner refuses to sell at any price. Posing as a school teacher searching for the grave of an ancestor killed in the First World War, Colin travels to the little Flemish village where the pigeon fancier lives and starts to look for something that will separate the bird from its owner. But in the process he falls under the spell of the place and of Isabelle, the pigeon fancier's spirited granddaughter.Written by
Pigeon races are determined by the fastest bird home, not the first bird home as stated in the film. This is because the birds travel different distance to each of the owners loft and to prevent the closest loft having an advantage. See more »
Colin (Jamie Dornan) is a Wall Street high flyer who goes to Dubai to convince a Sheikh to invest in his company's fund rather than his rival. The sheikh reveals that he is a fan of competitive pigeon racing and dreams of winning the prestigious Barcelona pigeon race.
However to do that he needs a fast pigeon, one owned by a grouchy old Belgian who refuses to part with it even though he has been offered sackful of cash by the Arab.
Taking the hint, Colin descends to Belgium on the pretext of finding a war grave of his ancestor and falls for the old man's granddaughter.
This is small scale film, it has some charm but it was better done in films such as Local Hero. I just thought this got boring very quickly.
