Given that the opening shot shows the heroine on the toilet, what a nice surprise to find that this is a pure love story, told with elegance and simplicity on a low budget.
Sparks' oddball, self-deprecatory charm and Ireland's uncertainties play off each other nicely as their eclectic tastes mesh; both characters are thrilled at finding someone who accepts and even welcomes the other's peculiarities.
Marin Ireland and Paul Sparks deliver terrific performances in this charmingly quirky love story.
[A] disarmingly offbeat romance ...
Basically a two-hander, Sparrows Dance could be easily adapted for the stage, but writer-director Noah Buschel uses plenty of cinematic tools to fancy up his simple story.
Something special is hidden here.
The real beauty of "Sparrows Dance" is seeing all the artifice of its movie trappings fall away, a construction that Buschel asks the audience to confront directly in a slow dance scene
Sparrows Dance unfolds like a play with its emotion projected through cadence, carefully written words, and an excitingly raw series of expressive body language.
Masterful in its silences,writer/director Noah Buschel's Sparrows Dance begins almost as a tribute to Chantal Akerman's masterpiece, Jeanne Dielman, 23 Qual du Commerce, 1080 Bruxelles, the difference mainly being a dissimilar choice of heroines.
An agoraphobic meets a plumber, a dreary prospect with even drearier results.
A mannered, occasionally mesmerizing romance that frequently cops to its own artificiality.
It's one of the year's best films and also one of the smallest. We can't wait to see what Buschel does next.
