The Captured Bird Synopsis

A darkly poetic fable that begins with a little girl drawing figures of people with chalk on the cement of a playground. She takes notice of an unusual crack in the pavement that is seeping a mysterious black fluid, which she follows to an ominous building. Inside, she encounters several bizarre phenomena, including walls that bleed black and tentacles that emerge from the ceiling to touch her. She then witnesses the birth of five terrifying supernatural beings that threaten the existence of her world.

Visually  it appeases the viewers but  in terms of plot or story there is no clear-cut definition.  Or rather, just as the synopsis stated,  it is meant to be a poetic fable that somehow shows how the supernatural beings came to be.  There is a scary effect but somehow the film didn't quite make an impact to  the viewers.

  • The film was not convincing enough for me, though I like the cinematography, musical score and the lighting.
