Man Is Not a Bird

Čovek nije tica

Directed by Dušan Makavejev
Yugoslavia, 1965
Drama, Romance


Man Is Not a Bird is an antic portrait of the love lives of two less-than-heroic men who labor inside a copper factory, yet Makavejev makes room for plentiful free-form riffing on the almost comically bleak environs. This is one of cinema’s most assured and daring debuts.
