Has a kind of twofold eloquence.
It's a beautifully simple portrait of a country in ferment and a family struggling to define its soul.
With compassionate restraint, Masud challenges the intimate link of religious fundamentalism to national power.
The filmmaker's clear empathy for his characters and close knowledge of his subject matter gives the film a vibrant authenticity that well compensates for any narrative flaws.
It has a quiet thoughtfulness that never comes close to being draggy, and a wisdom that is anything but obtuse.
Poignant and beautiful.
... done with conviction for the long-suffering people of Bangladesh.
...it has about it the resonance of truth as well as a gentle equanimity
Clay Bird is beautifully photographed, and the central story is compelling but, too often, the characters feel like stick figures being manipulated to prove the movie's valid, but obvious, point.
The earthy imagery is delicate while the drama is oddly elliptical, creating a lovely film of storybook images and parables.
While The Clay Bird might be a bit too restrained for its own dramatic good, at least the film sheds light on a significant part of world history in a way relevant to contemporary viewers.
There's just not that much genuine conflict to sink your teeth into.
