Birds of Passage

Birds of Passage

£3.99 (Discount available for Curzon Cinema Members)
From the makers of the Oscar-nominated ‘Embrace of the Serpent’ comes a tale of family, criminality, justice and revenge unlike anything else. Based on a true story and unfolding over the course of two decades, ‘Birds of Passage’ shows how a tribe in the north of Colombia entered the profitable marijuana business, dominating it for years, before competing forces threatened the tribe’s entire existence. Unlike the monochrome beauty of the jungle in ‘Serpent’, Ciro Guerra and Cristina Gallego’s new film is shot in vivid colour and against the backdrop of Colombia’s rich landscape, creating a compelling portrait of a world. Exclusively in cinemas and on Curzon Home Cinema. ★★★★ "A mesmerising and transporting drug epic like no other" - Phil de Semlyen, Time Out ★★★★ "A stunner of a movie" - Laurshka Ivan-zadeh, Metro ★★★★ - Nigel Andrews, Financial Times ★★★★ "Beautiful" - Ed Potton, The Times ★★★★ "Combines magical realism with the epic sweep of The Godfather" - Mark Kermode's Film of the Week, The Observer" ★★★★ "Really startling and intriguing" - Peter Bradshaw's Film of the Week, The Guardian
