Storyline

Some ground subsidence has occurred in a suburban area and a team of engineers, including Hao, is dispatched to investigate the cause. After days of wandering around in the empty suburb looking for answers and carrying his heavy gear, Hao walks into a primary school where he finds a diary chronicling the story of a boy and the separation of what seems to be an intimate group. As the investigation keeps going, Hao discovers that this diary might contain prophecies about his own life.

Score too low
13 May 2019 | by ohdarkeSee all my reviews

Suburban Birds has a cerebral plot line and lush shots that show a true element of contemporary Chinese life. While many might not give it a 9, its current 4 stars isn't totally fair. At the very least the film, in style and substance, diverged from the pro forma pap folks gobble up in mainstream movie houses. "Detective Pikachu," for example, is hovering right now at 7.1.
