Movie Info

Documentary filmmaker Mikael Kristersson offers an unusual look at the life of animals. Two kestrels (European falcons) build a nest in the steeple of a Swedish church, and over the next two years, the birds lay eggs, hatch their young, feed and raise them, and watch as they leave the nest. As we observe the lives of the kestrels, they in turn observe the church functions, weddings, and funerals in the shadow of their home. Kestrel's Eye received the Planete Cabale Award at the 1998 Marseille Festival of Documentary Films.

At the end of this extraordinary film, we were left with a feeling of deep reverence for the kestrels.

The spare, methodical approach diminishes any hope for excitement.
