My favourite Nicholas Cage movie.
December 2, 2010
One of best movies I have ever seen.
November 29, 2010
This movie is probably better than my impression of it. Intensely symbolic and allegorical, darkly comic at times, with a strong anti-war message. The ending was awesome.

(1984) Birdy

DRAMA/ with some realistic WAR scenes

Well made film directed by Alan Parker (Midnight Express) about Sgt Alfonso (Nicholas Cage) doing whatever he can to pull Mathew Modine out of shock from what happened to Birdy (Mathew Modine) as a result while in Nam. Subltle as well as a fascinating character study reavaluating about one's life!!
Based on a novel by William Wharton.

Wonderful, dreaming movie, about the illusions of two young people, and also about how they were affected by Vietnam war. Wonderful work from Alan Parker, who uses again the music as a wonderful instrument, but is also great about developing the story and the shots.

A soldier returns from Vietnam to find his boyhood friend, also a fellow soldier, in a military hospital, having suffered a mental breakdown in which he has become detached from reality and imagines that he is a bird.
