(Vu kekpar sur le web) Très déçu par ce film de P. Ferran, dont j'avais pourtant adoré la "Lady Chaterley". Englué dans ses prémices, le récit de ce Bird People ne semble jamais décollé (un comble!). Les parcours des 2 protagonistes manquent de liens, tandis que la dimension fantastique arrive bien trop tard. Certaines séquences paresseuses ne sont pas loin du ratage complet (je pense à la séquence Skype). Fuyez!!!
Still wrestling over this one. The reveal is a little disorienting, and I'm not sure that the filmmaker understood where it should finish. It held my attention, and forced me (quite literally) to understand the world from a radically different perspective. I'm just not sure this added up to much.
The literal flight of fancy in the second half was amazing and gorgeous, but it couldn't elevate the utter garbage, boring depiction of the vile man in its first half. Couldn't stand watching him; I don't ask for sympathy for all characters, but I do want to be able to stomach "anti-heroes" in some capacity.
What's so delightful about Ferran's latest is just how willing the film is to defy one's expectations and take the story in a surreal and offbeat direction. What starts as a blend of 'Up In The Air' and perhaps 'Villa Amalia' winds up having more in common with Noe's 'Exit the Void'. Demoustier is quite wonderful here but more surprising is the somber work of Josh Charles and a supporting turn by Radha Mitchell.
