This is the worst film I've seen in years. The acting is good but the story doesn't hang togeher. It switches between dramatic styles and moods until the viewer is totally stripped of any possible interest in the outcome.

Pleasant movie, boy meets girl kinda plot. Interesting that none of the other prior six comments mention the portion of the movie on birds, specifically the sparrow. This is not a short section, around half hour or more. I do like birds, parrots especially actually. Maybe the other viewers didn't watch this movie till the end, some say they didn't Regardless i would recommend to watch it, there are plenty of movies worse than Bird People!

Slow-moving, even by European standards. Lots of cigarette smoking and pensive staring. Gave up halfway through, before the supposedly "good" part.

This movie shows several people dealing with stress and personal problems, and allows their lives to intertwine. A charming combination of realism and fantasy. A little slow-paced, but enjoyable.

Horrible. Watched almost half the movie and it just showed a man in his hotel room.

This film was a pleasant surprise. did not expect much but the description intrigued me and glad it did.

These are two parallel stories of a man who abruptly decides to radically change his life, and a young hotel maid. They are scary and fascinating at the same time.

This imaginative story starts out slow (so it is not for those with short attention spans) but is just gripping to watch. A minimum of dialogue: facial expressions and actions tell much of the story. And it is a story worth seeing.

Imaginative 2nd half saved the film's first half's boring tired tale of a successful but burnt out Silicon Valley technologist. Message is to break free from the suffocating routine of making a living in today's hectic environment.
