In its second half, for reasons best left unspecified, Pascale Ferran’s Bird People has cause to frequently adopt a flying bird’s perspective or observe an avian perfectly hitting its marks. The seamlessness throughout is clearly unrealizable naturally, but I couldn’t tell at any point what was computer-assisted or generated. This is CGI even more invisible than David Fincher’s color correction — I couldn’t spot it at all, which means the job’s been done perfectly.

One could easily argue that 2006 years later, [two of the stanzas from Ovid’s Metamorphoses] have been cracked open and scrambled into Pascale Ferran’s Bird People, the most bizarre and knowing examination of metamorphosis and humanity in recent memory. The immediate correlation is Perdix’s transformative fall from grace, which Ferran, for her purposes, adapts into a life affirming, empowering respite.

That Bird People ultimately abandons these more deeply unsettling implications for a banal vision of connection across language and class barriers speaks less to a lack of imagination than to a failure of thematic follow-through. At the risk of taking the avian symbolism a step too far, I’d wager that telegraphing one’s intentions to interrogate the realities of 21st-century dislocation only to settle for hands-across-the-water truisms seems a little chicken.
