Plot synopsis
A young boy gets a brutal sentimental education under the open skies of medieval Uzbekistan. Ali Khamraev's stylistic tour de force is almost unclassifiable - a mystic vision, an eastern western, a pageant of color and movement, a portrait of adolescence painted in broad, expressionistic strokes. MAN FOLLOWS BIRDS moves from one sumptuous moment to the next - rides through ecstatically colored landscapes, a trio of friends waking up covered in apple blossoms, the hero imagining his beautiful and long-dead mother in images that have an abstract power and beauty. A movie that truly deserves the word "visionary."
