Audience Reviews for A Walk Through H: The Reincarnation of an Ornithologist

½

All the familiar elements of Greenaway's early work come together: precision editing, oddball names, ornithology, convoluted stories, the number 92, "Tulse Luper", cataloging, repeating themes, Nyman score, dry wit. It's a warm-up to The Falls, and would satisfy in a pinch if one wanted a taste of that film without the intimidating running time. Greenaway's artistic sensibility shines through, not only from the intricate maps, but also in the gestalt of the film as a whole. Very intriguing.

Who knew that a film composed of filmed still drawings, narration, and footage of birds could be so compellingly layered, so fascinatingly cinematic?
