Though you could fit its story on the head of a pin, "A Bird of the Air" is a gently involving character dramedy with a pair of appealing leads who help give this offbeat movie flight.
Its lethargic plotting and quirky affectation are -- wait for it -- strictly for the birds.
Not a bad premise, but first-time director Margaret Whitton fails to temper the sappiness with real human crustiness.
Unfortunately, the film itself never quite feeds off the quirkiness or the energy, and so it remains a pleasant but not a profound film.
A lovely little modern screwball comedy that only hard-hearted cynics will resist. An unexpected bonus comes with the delightful stream of old pro's as...master storytellers.
Quirky screwball romance has many original points of interest, but is marred by fatal miscasting of a lead.
Margaret Whitton's A Bird of the Air traffics in a sort of vague, half-defined spiritual questing.
