Ciudad Autónoma de Buenos Aires

Pascale Ferran’s latest film to date begins with a story of alienation starred by two possible extremes of “consumer aesthetics:” on one side, a Silicon Valley executive who was on his way to Dubai but ends up in Paris, where he decides to cut off (via Skype!) with his job, his family, his country, and everything that up to then was his past –hell, his life. On the other, a young woman working in the hotel where the drama of modern man occurs, accepting his fate with a contagious yet slightly reserved smile. Ferran alternatively shows one and the other, and slows down the film as much as it’s needed at the precise moment of surfeit and liberation. Now, take our word for it: there’s not much sense in revealing here the reason why the combustion of these raw materials generated (released into the air) the most beautiful and free film you’ll see this year. The miracle of Bird People shouldn’t be described (due the old issue of spoilers) and, most especially, cannot be described (due to an even older issue: it’s serious cinema, grand cinema, sorcery in high definition).

Pascale Ferran Francia

It’s been said of Pascale Ferran, who was born in Paris in 1960 and graduated from the prestigious IDHEC, that she “practices film like haute couture or the engineering of precision.” And even though such a statement becomes easily verifiable in the elegance of her Lady Chatterley or the airport landscape in Bird People, it is als...
