Poetic, mesmerising, unapologetic and memorable.
This is like a gift giver that just keeps on giving. Never once throughout the almost three hour run time was I bored. I was captivated from the very first minute right up until the final fade out.
We follow a young Jewish boy trying to survive amidst the chaos of World War II. His luck is horrible and he is subjected to a series of abuses and abusers.
Stay with him, the Painted Bird pays off and will linger in your mind long after you’ve seen it.
Overly long, collage of atrocies
Yes, the cinematography and casting are impressive. But nothing justifies almost three hours of the cruelty and atrocities depicted on-screen – relentless beatings, sexual abuse, bestiality, mutilation and murder – as the film follows a young boy wandering the ravaged wasteland of Eastern Europe near the close of WWII.
Beyond bringing a 55-year-old novel to the screen, the film adds nothing new to the existing body of work depicting devastation in war zones, except for a heightened level of violence and depravity. Other films cover the same ground and are more worthwhile – the best by far is Klimov’s “Come and See.”
Peter Debruge of Variety said it best: “I should have known from the opening scene, in which bullies catch the boy running with a ferret, beat the child and set the poor animal on fire. If gratuitous displays of cruelty are tough for you to watch, that introduction serves as a clear warning of what lies in store…”
