The crow's performance is the best thing in it.

The hawks, thought to have taken on the message only to continue attacking the sparrows, is an allegory that makes a timeless statement on the absolute pointlessness of organised religion.

An intriguing tragicomic fable that shows two delightful innocents caught, like many Italians at the time, between the Church and communism.
October 23, 2004
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.

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.
