Birdsong's hard-core adherence to such rigorous aesthetics is strictly for the true believers, but they will be rewarded tenfold.

The lovely and strange Birdsong (El Cant dels Ocells) is less a retelling of the Nativity story than a dream about it.

Catalan filmmaker Albert Serra is an artist whose work inspires more thinking than philosophizing.

Mostly engrossing for patient viewers who'll be able to truly appreciate the seemingly simple, minimal narrative and to sense the wealth of emotion and complexities lurking beneath it.

a work of faith that treats the tenants of its story with as much respect as it treats the medium in which it operates.
