More Info:
  • A.O. Scott

    There are plot twists, and then there is what Ms. Ferran does here, which is to transform — impetuously, improbably and altogether marvelously — this somber, realistic tale into something else entirely.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Mike D'Angelo

    It’s also just magnificently goofy, unafraid to court ridicule and confident enough to take captivating detours.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Robert Abele

    Ferran's eccentricity is an acquired taste, but the light, emotional artfulness of Bird People — a cry for the senses in a world that so often dulls — is welcome.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Melissa Anderson

    Firmly rooted in everyday particulars — primarily the transactions (business, emotional, or otherwise) facilitated by the time- and space-obliterating devices to which we are constantly tethered — Ferran's movie dares to venture, for much of its second half, into fantasy.

  • Noel Murray

    The emotions evoked by Bird People should be familiar to anyone who ever stared out the window of a classroom, imagining what it would be like to leave school, hop on a bike, and go for a ride around the mostly empty neighborhood.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Jordan Mintzer

    It’s a tricky proposition that will surely ruffle the feathers of many viewers, but one that also makes a curious, if lasting, impression, thanks in part to strong turns from actors Anais Demoustier and Josh Charles.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Jesse Cataldo

    Pascale Ferran's film isn't daring enough to fully embrace the narrative fragmentation that it sporadically assumes.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Peter Debruge

    Where the film goes is both unexpected and necessary, since however grounded and relatable these thinly detailed characters might be, the movie doesn’t actually seem to be going anywhere.

    Variety Full Review
  • Stephanie Merry

    The whole thing is so inconsistent, with intermittent slow motion and curious motivations, that you have to finally just accept things like a disappearing narrator as par for the course.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Brian Tallerico

    Demoustier is a charming young actress. And there are clearly interesting ideas taking flight here. It’s the execution of the flight plan that keeps them from reaching their destination. Full Review
  • Oliver Lyttelton

    There are moments of beauty and charm, but also ones that felt rather broad, like an extract from a live-action Disney movie or something. It is fitfully interesting, but nearly broke our twee detectors.

    The best moments in Bird People soar to such heights that you almost want to forgive the parts that amount to mere droppings.
