A father and his son find themselves surrounded by a landscape that takes them away from everyday life. A kite getting stuck on a tree is just the trigger for an explosive amount of narrated adventures that, in the end, stand as a family love story.
“That being so, how many of us fight to really perceive our own children?”. The question posed by Stan Brakhage back in the ‘60s gets an elementary and solid answer in A Perfect Day to Fly. Because Marc Recha’s film is, among other things, one about how we sense the time passing by simply observing our children as they grow. The plot excuse is minimum: a man and a boy fly a kite and talk –that’s pretty much it. With this premise, Rocha’s familiar and intimate approach manages to braze a thrillingly essential element, in which a conversation between a father and his son sets up the film’s tempo. And the face of the remarkable actor Sergi Lopez modulates a tone that goes from luminous and unconcerned to a somber outcome. FG
