  1. EdieEmm's rating of the film The Parrot and the Swan

    I'll admit that I like this guy's films more than it maybe makes sense to. Honestly, I probably watched mostly just 'cause I was really enjoying the company. (Jonathan Holland says "haphazard multiple layers just about held together by the force of its director's personality") Like an oblique, deadpan sketch comedy mockumentary where the prompt is: Artistic renderings of love, vs actual love. (Go!) 3.5. Maybe 3.75

  2. David Sindmark Hörnfeldt's rating of the film The Parrot and the Swan

    Dance is what movies were made for, I think. I couldn't concentrate but that's more me than the movie. But still more likable than great.

  3. Jeff Heinzl's rating of the film The Parrot and the Swan

    finally, the film to prove definitively that a sennheiser is the ultimate hipster accessory

  4. captainfez's rating of the film The Parrot and the Swan

    Fairly accurate portrait of a soundo, really.

  5. Kevin Matthews's rating of the film The Parrot and the Swan

    Written and directed by Alejo Moguillansky, this enjoyable comedy parallels the ups and downs of a character named Parrot alongside the ups and downs of the documentary that he is working on. It could have been funnier, and some scenes feel fairly pointless, but this is still a good watch, and certainly one to recommend for people seeking something a bit different.

  6. Samuel Wells's rating of the film The Parrot and the Swan

    The film walk behind a screen of pseudo documentarianism to tell a story behind the scenes. The film still tells a fascinating story of the dancers in front of the cameras, showcasing Argentine culture. This makes the film worth watching just for that pleasure. The story of Loro adds to the brilliance, surprisingly charismatic for his demeanor. The plot following the crew is clever and concise, a great contrast.

  7. Muriel's rating of the film The Parrot and the Swan

    A shy sound engineer, a documentary, 4 dance companies, multiple dance interludes, a documentary-within-a-documentary, a love fiction that ends, another one that begins. Added bonus: spot the hidden Beatles lyrics.

  8. Superfrog's rating of the film The Parrot and the Swan

    It is all fine to show the seams, but it would be much better on something more interesting.

  9. koolacct's rating of the film The Parrot and the Swan

    charming in the sense of Loro's mic and the way it was shot to mimic a documentary, but because it was shot in the way of a documentary, the time reserved for modular dialogue (which is usually explanatory in the documentary) became draggish and mundane with small talk and slice of life shots. A film to put on in the background, certainly makes you feel warm/intimate to the characters, but not a standout.

  10. Slappy McGee's rating of the film The Parrot and the Swan

    Lot of ballet and other forms of dance for a simple little romantic comedy. Heh. It's a sweet film. Kind of small and simplistic. Light and easy. Bit of humor here and there. Nothing gut-busting, but nothing cheesy either. It's not a significant film, but it's harmless enough. A decent little treat.

  11. Alex Flores's rating of the film The Parrot and the Swan

    Slow, irrelevant and plain boring.

  12. Cassandra Jiskoot's rating of the film The Parrot and the Swan

    Loro is a boom operator on the set of a dance documentary. Since so much of his world revolves around sound, he always has his mic with him. On the rare occasion that he doesn't have it, the viewer hears no sound. We only hear what his equipment records. The viewer is not meant to identify with the camera lens because the movie is in the style of a documentary, much like in the actual story.

  13. MATTEO BITTANTI's rating of the film The Parrot and the Swan

    An inflated short that collapses under the weight of 120 interminable minutes.

  14. GXSullivan's rating of the film The Parrot and the Swan

    Any real culture needs such weavings together of diverse occupations, viewpoints, locales, experiences, personalities... I really would love to see the equivalent of this film made in the US. And so glad the American disappeared and the story grew warmer.

  15. GADS's rating of the film The Parrot and the Swan

    Poseedora de una sensibilidad dérmica, térmica y, afortunadamente, de trato amable para con el amor que habita en los corazones dubitativos, cautelosos (es decir todos los corazones que están VIVOS)

  16. Francisco's rating of the film The Parrot and the Swan

    El loro es uno de los mejores personajes de comedia romántica que he visto en mi vida, al podio con los grandes . Y esta es una de la mejores comedias románticas vista en años. Al terminar la película deja el género mejor de lo que lo encontró.
