    escape from ugliness to beauty leading back to destruction. we cannot escape from the socio-economic structures of our lives. we cannot create a private "utopia". (an incredibly beautiful film tho!!!)

  6. Henri de Corinth's rating of the film Birds, Orphans and Fools

    Same dilemma as Chytilova's Daisies: The sociocultural environment that informs the art is more interesting than the art itself.

  8. José Neves's rating of the film Birds, Orphans and Fools

    Strictly speaking, this unscrewed film doesn't interest me, but a viewer should take account of the context, historical and social, in which the works are originated and in that sense i am interested in it as an allegory of a libertarian act, a sincere expression of an intention and its contemporary artistic expression - Soviet dictatorship, 60s agit prop & happenings. I do not like, et lasse, the expression itself.

  9. Michael Zyx MH Claes's rating of the film Birds, Orphans and Fools

    69 erotic year. Noot much sex in this happening movie. This is sympaczech, nothing more. But today it has aged. === 69, année érotique. Bon, pas grand chose d'érotique dans ce film-happening. C'est sympathchèque, sans plus. Aujourd'hui ça ne casse plus 3 pattes à 1 canard.

  10. cyrikelly's rating of the film Birds, Orphans and Fools

    De temps en temps, nous avons besoin de ce type de film pour casser cette vie de conformisme. Merci au Réalisateur pour ce grand film baroque.

  11. Cassandra Tavukciyan's rating of the film Birds, Orphans and Fools

    candles, wardrobes, fur vests :the birds represent 'the souls of the dead' in this dark, carnivalesque frolic, a trio of 'orphans', Yorick, Andrej and Marta, playing games in a crumbling old house, erotic theatricality, and psychedelic 'liberationist' surrealism in the design and editing.

  12. Adriano Rocha's rating of the film Birds, Orphans and Fools

    Um triângulo amoroso, onde adultos agem como crianças que querem viver ao máximo. Mas a felicidade muitas vezes leva à destruição. Uma obra-prima.

  13. Madison Killough's rating of the film Birds, Orphans and Fools

    An interesting play on estranging oneself from the madness of the world (and the shadow of the USSR) through foolishness and apparent nonchalant attitudes, similar to Chytilova's "Daisies." “Birds, Orphans and Fools” is yet another classic of the obscure Czech new wave that brings you under into potent yet nuanced blissful delirium. 'Only madness guarantees that you won't remain unhappy.'
