Audience Reviews for The Hawks and the Sparrows (Uccellacci e uccellini)

  • Sep 25, 2013
    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.
