Audience Reviews for Sparrows

  • Jul 17, 2016
    Be careful of this deceitful film. Ninety per cent of it is about a schoolboy who looks like a Michelangelo and sings divinely, his charming school kid friends, his wise grandmother and his immature rough-artist father who has to grow up as the boy is starting to grow up. You are sitting back enjoying the Icelandic scenery and quaint lifestyles. Then there is warning shot, literally, a scene of shooting a seal for sport - the shot seems to have missed, one hopes. Then the boy is sexually abused. Then his schoolgirl girlfriend is raped and duped like a fool. So the film leads you along thinking it is an intelligent piece and finishes by displaying voyeuristic child abuse. Half a star, for the beautiful seal. Minus many stars for the sexist, sly effort to get this kind of despicable pornography into mainstream cinema.
