Owl and the Sparrow the Movie

owl and sparrow

Owl and the Sparrow is one of the most touching films I've seen in a while. It doesn't pretend to be profound or grand, but it's pitched just right.

Set in Vietnam, a homeless girl, an air-stewardess, and a zoo keeper, three lonely people in a city of over 8m people. The homeless girl is played brilliantly.

Tender and warm without getting too mushy.

And bonus great shots of modern, busy, bustling Saigon, too.

Highly recommended.
