Burt is simply beautiful in this movie. It all makes me think about life and how good it can be. Do not forget what rehabilitation means: to invest again with dignity. Say these words out and loud and you'll see that it makes sense. I wake up everyday investing in myself for good, "today is the day", I think. Today is always the day I improve a little bit.
Le dénommé Robert Stroud, un criminel lourd et brutal, incarcéré à vie, découvre un jour lors d'une promenade un oiseau blessé. Il le soigne et commence à se prendre de passion pour l'ornithologie jusqu'à étudier les maladies de certains volatiles. Il parvient à mettre au point des remèdes fort efficaces qui assurent sa renommée hors de prison ..... EXCELLENT ! www.cinefiches.com
Another solid Frankenheimer 60's effort, again with Lancaster in the lead role. 7 Days In May was the best film that resulted from this partnership, but Birdman should not be cast aside as second rate. Lancaster was rarely more understated and personal than he is here and turns in, imo, a career defining performance, up there with his debut in the Killers. My one bone to pick is its a bit long. 4 stars
