A woman flees her country in an attempt to save her teenage daughter's life.
22 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

"The Bird May Die" is a  compelling narrative. I found myself glued to the screen, wanting every part of the story to be clear to me. Well done! There are a few technical short-comings I feel I must mention though. The subtitles go by a little too quickly for my liking, but they are very clear. There are a few translation problems. I only mention this problem because it takes away the viewers focus on the real heart of the film. For example at 29:26 the subtitle is "sweetheart" instead of sweetheart as it appears several times later. The general locations for filming highlight a budget issue, perhaps more footage outside the two houses and local shopping area could have been introduced. Melika Pirozan and Mojgan Baghi do a fine job with their roles but some of the others acting is marginal. Your camera work is fair but the cinematography left me feeling a bit cramped. The sound was good and the story, your high point in my opinion, was clear and well developed.     I enjoyed your film and will recommend it to my friends if it is shown here. It is very international in scope and gives the viewers a broader understanding of the life concerns, style and matters of importance outside the local viewers sphere. Thank you for this journey of new understanding.
