The Ornithologist

June 2018117 minutes

The Ornithologist, from provocative auteur Joao Pedro Rodrigues, made waves at TIFF and Locarno (where it received the coveted Best Director award) as a visually arresting and "powerful… mind-blowing" (IndieWire) journey into the Portuguese wilderness and beyond. When an amateur explorer is waylaid on a bird-watching expedition, he stumbles into a suspenseful journey of encounter, danger, and lust, on the path toward total enlightenment. This truly astonishing film has won the hearts of critics, who have called it; "gorgeously realised" (Hollywood Reporter), "deliciously subversive and genuinely funny" (Variety), and "the single most delightful and narratively adventurous movie I saw at Toronto" (The New York Times).
