The Painted Bird - UK & Ireland release

Fri 11 Sep 2020

Václav Marhoul’s cinematic masterpiece follows the journey of a boy, entrusted by his Jewish parents to an elderly foster mother in an effort to escape persecution. Wandering through the desecrated countryside, the boy encounters villagers and soldiers whose own lives have been brutally altered, and who are intent on revisiting this brutality on him. An unflinching examination of the very worst of humanity it features a staggering central performance from the young Petr Kotlár alongside a star-studded international ensemble including Udo Kier, Stellan Skarsgård, Harvey Keitel, Julian Sands and Barry Pepper. Premiered at the Venice International Film Festival, the film has won ecstatic acclaim.
