Critic Reviews for Owl and the Sparrow
By taking a fairly unromantic approach to the standard strangers-meet-in-a-cold-world premise, writer-director Stephane Gauger crafts a lovely, lovelorn fable.
Stephane Gauger's debut feature, Owl and the Sparrow, is a charming little movie, nothing more.
Sentimental without being cloying, the film is a charmer, just like the gravely wide-eyed Pham.
Owl and the Sparrow is yet one more film that preaches the importance of opening your heart and reaching out to those around you, but that treacly sentiment is nicely undercut by the unvarnished naturalness of the actors.
Audience Reviews for Owl and the Sparrow
A really good, sweet, honest and touching movie. The cast is excellent, the story is well-crafted, and it shows quite well despite an obviously tiny budget. I enjoyed getting a glimpse of a very different culture, and people, who are able to find happiness in friendship despite the difficult circumstances they live in. Beautiful. Poignant. Made me tear up..what more can I gush about?
This is the best new movie of the year. . .an uplifting fable, terrific acting and the cinematography makes you want to travel to Saigon tomorrow. An A-plus.
