Movie Info

This poignant Polish drama follows a misfit girl as she wanders about her home city in the company of a lost toddler. Known only as the Crow, she is taunted by her peers and ignored by her constantly at-work mother, but the little girl seems too lost in her own dream world to care. One day the Crow is out for a walk when she finds a lost baby. Telling the little child that she is her mother, the Crow and the toddler spend the day sauntering around the river Vistula. At the day's end, the Crow returns the babe to her parents, goes to her own apartment and falls asleep on the floor. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

Critic Reviews for Crows

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (7)

This short and simple film is beautiful not only in its emotionally-honest story but in its cinematography.

September 9, 2014 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

the writer-director, Dorota Kedzierzawska, working with a gifted cinematographer (Arthur Reinhart), brings a light, fluid touch to Wrona's adventures (the beach scenes look especially magical).

September 9, 2014 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

A brief and powerful mood piece, with the concentration and purity of a fine short story.

A neatly observed mood piece about a prepubescent tyke's day on the lam.

The film might seem a little too studiously poetic were it not for young Karolina Ostrozona's performance: vibrant, touching, natural, and totally free of sentimentality.

As affecting as this is in spots, it often seems overextended, even though it's only 72 minutes long. Still, you're not likely to forget it.
