  3. Pavel Dumitrescu's rating of the film Birds of Passage

  4. Jorge Mourinha's rating of the film Birds of Passage

    Greek tragedy and native tradition meets SCARFACE in this inspired-by-real-events mob drama set in the Colombian hinterlands, in an intriguing clash of ancestral story-telling and modern myth-making.

  5. Nikyatu's rating of the film Birds of Passage

    Visually stunning exploration of the intersections of tribalism, tradition, modernity, morality...I enjoyed getting a peek into a world I never knew existed (Wayuu).

    3.5 cu Ştefănuţ într-o seară ploioasă

  8. Le Ciné Chez Nico's rating of the film Birds of Passage

  9. MATTEO BITTANTI's rating of the film Birds of Passage

    high brow Narcos, condensed in two hours, with the tamest drug lord ever glimpsed on screen. According to Guerra and Gallego, when it comes to illegal substances, a matriarchy will do just fine. Kids beware: weed is the gateway drug to Scarface.

  10. †. Kennedy Pope's rating of the film Birds of Passage

    The ubiquitous wave of capitalism engulfs the deep roots of culture in this fantastic drug epic. A more than worthy follow-up to Embrace of the Serpent, Guerra and Gallego share the little-known story of the Wayuu in the same fashion as the Greek tragedies of old. Beautifully shot and acted as well.

  11. Garry Eunson's rating of the film Birds of Passage

    Deeply poetic & powerful piece of cinema.

  12. Leon Blank's rating of the film Birds of Passage

    An earthy gangster epic filtered through a spiritual tone poem with the style of a slow arthouse picture. While an interesting take on the effect of the drug trade on indigenous communities and the conflict between generations, Birds of Passage is ultimately too generic. The characters are fairly one-dimensional and it could've done with emphasising the spiritualistic aspect more.

  13. Jdsarmientoburgos's rating of the film Birds of Passage

    The story is based on early drug-trafficking days in Colombia, but unlike most films from his genre those details set up the events but the focus is mainly on a culture, language and customs that most know nothing about. I'm just very proud of Guerra and Gallego, and what they're doing for Colombian cinema.

  14. Carlos Filipe Freitas's rating of the film Birds of Passage

    In addition to David Gallego’s delightful cinematography, which captures both luxurious and arid landscapes with the same exuberance, we have enthralling folk music connected to ancient traditions, dreams, allegories, and premonitions in a stylized, hybrid tale of power, love, vendetta, and honor.

  16. St.Just's rating of the film Birds of Passage

  17. Michael H. CLAES's rating of the film Birds of Passage

    It would be reductive to look at this as a prequel to BREAKING BAD or NARCO. But more a reflection on the failure of vendetta, the importance of values, the risks inherent to bad money. === Il serait réducteur de n'y voir qu'un prequel de BREAKING BAD ou NARCO. C'est avant tout une réflexion sur l'inutilité de la vendetta, l'importance des valeurs, les risques inhérents à l'argent mal acquis === A masterpiece.

  18. Denis Zordan's rating of the film Birds of Passage

  19. Superfrog's rating of the film Birds of Passage

    Mysticism, guns and poorly cured weed mix for a long and boring film that could have been saved by a decently tense script but instead is further disserved by bad cinematography

  20. mauro's rating of the film Birds of Passage

  21. Audrey's rating of the film Birds of Passage

    Un film de guns lent, ça l'air que c'est possible. Aucun moment inutile, tout est justifié, maîtrisé. Archétypes de personnages auraient pu être une tite coche plus nuancé, pour faire balancer le film du côté génie. J'feel pas trop la madame qui lit dans les rêves, je pense que si je parlais sa langue je trouverais son jeu poche. Trame son malade.
