Birdsong
Spain 2008
Director: Albert Serra

Catalan maverick Serra turns his attention to the biblical tale of the Magi. BIRDSONG is, however, anything but a glossy attempt at Hollywood historicism. Rather Serra offers a witty contemplation of the three wise men searching for the newborn baby Jesus, and their journey takes on epic proportions as they meander along the desert-like terrain with fortitude and stoicism. Replete with espadrilles and full robes, they trek across the expansive landscape, stopping to ruminate, rest, bicker, swim, debate the route, and try to outdo each other recounting eccentric dreams. This is a film that refuses to follow the literal, opting instead for a celebration of the playful and the imaginary. London Film Festival (98 min)
