"A trained ornithologist himself, Rodrigues has made what is likely his most personal film since 'O Fantasma', and the fascinating 'The Ornithologist' launches his filmography into new and adventurous territory." (Filmfestival Locarno) "Rodrigues always casts an immersive spell. That's thanks in part to a sharp, consistent visual sensibility - the deep forest greens and ominous shadows of nighttime scenes create a world rich with uncertainties." (Indiewire) "Rodrigues's most impressive achievement is his ability to confer coherence on the most disparate of ideas, and the result is moment after moment of baffling, sensuous beauty."
