The Ornithologist (15)
Dir: João Pedro Rodrigues, Portugal/Fr/Brazil, 2016, 117 mins, Portuguese, English & Mandarin dialogue with subtitles
Paul Hamy, Xelo Cagiao, João Pedro Rodrigues

An ornithologist studying black storks in Portugal is forced to go through a series of brutal tests after his boat capsizes and he is rescued by two female Chinese pilgrims, in a story imitating the life of Saint Anthony of Padua. A deliciously subversive and sexily spiritual experience.
