L’Île aux oiseaux  (Bird Island)

Switzerland  ·  2019  ·  DCP  ·  Color  ·  60'  ·  o.v. French

After a long period of isolation, Antonin rediscovers the world in a bird shelter where, rocked by the noise of planes, troubled souls are saved just as much as the birds.


Taking the learning curve of apprenticeship as their faint dramatic outline, the two filmmakers still conceive cinema as starting from day-to-day situations to reveal their archetypical implications. Here the birds of prey kept in large cages become emblems of the alien, quarantined before they can fly far away. A parable of our time, told through images that are as clear and fundamental as the mystery they enshrine.
