The crow's performance is the best thing in it.
The genial, humorous and compassionate way in which these generalizations are conveyed, with the wonderful Italian clown, Toto, and Ninetto Davoli playing the father and son, is so lively and fascinating, so primitive and droll.
A whimsical fantasy about Christianity and Marxism; the question is left open as to whether Pasolini believes in either, or neither. Not that it matters much, Pasolini seems to say.
Pier Paolo Pasolini was a major theorist as well as a leader in the Italian avant-garde.
For the birds.
A sort of Marxist Hellzapoppin, politicized vaudeville and skittery poesy, an open structure overflowing with gags and ideas
The allegorical messages of the film are made quite clear, and Hawks and the Sparrows does not suffer from the overbearing self-conscious pretension that renders much of Pasolini's work inaccessible to most moviegoers.
An intriguing tragicomic fable that shows two delightful innocents caught, like many Italians at the time, between the Church and communism.
A boy and his father meet a talking raven who tells them the story of two monks sent by St. Francis to convert birds to Christianity, among other absurd adventures. This Marxist class parable is very much a product of Italy, circa 1966, and hasn't traveled well to our era.
...director risking the reputation: Pier Paolo Pasolini
