Birdboy: The Forgotten Children

Critics Consensus

Birdboy's nihilistic coming-of-age narrative captures innocence lost through surreal, striking animation and caustically optimistic storytelling.

Critic Reviews for Birdboy: The Forgotten Children (Psiconautas, los niños olvidados)

All Critics (32) | Top Critics (10) | Fresh (30) | Rotten (2)

  • The drawing style bears no resemblance to Japanese anime, yet the narrative tone is remarkably similar, with cute and sinister elements held in suspension by a deadpan cool.

    January 13, 2018 | Full Review…
  • An animated movie about troubled teens, and quite possibly for them as well, because it's so very like them: alternately sweet and scary, tender and violent, dense and scattered, and oh yes, childlike and adult.

    January 12, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • And though its dark riches can at moments feel like overload, and its narrative thrust occasionally grows diffuse, the story casts an undeniable spell.

    December 15, 2017 | Full Review…
  • This is a beautiful film, and an ugly one, and the tension between those two sides doesn't abate until the very last scene.

    December 15, 2017 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…
  • An oft-grisly and always visually dazzling allegorical fantasy that puts funny animals in a post-dystopian semi-wasteland.

    December 15, 2017 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Given how rigid and formulaic most mainstream animation is, there's something liberating about watching a traditionally hand-drawn cartoon thumb its nose so gleefully at traditional G-rated storytelling.
