A really amazingly executed experience that will definitely leave an impact
A incredible film with brilliantly executed shots and solid performances by the actors that will leave a great impact on you. I like to call this film an "exhaler", because when the film is over, you will have to exhale deeply because you are so overwhelmed by its amazingly done third act.
The third act is without a doubt the strongest part of this film, where you will be siting on the edge of your seat in excitement thanks to the beautiful long shots and the very minimal use of dialogue.
Sparrows is a brilliant drama with solid performances, and incredibly long shots that are handled perfectly and leaves a massive impact on you. Definitely worth a watch. Or two. Or three.
