The Ducks' Migration Synopsis

Two boys and close family friends, Jeremy and Alphonse, American and French, spend a few weeks together in Jeremy’s house in Brooklyn. Jeremy is confused about his understanding of the friendship, while obsessed with the ducks in the Prospect Park’s lake and finishing a school paper about their migration. Alphonse likes to ride bicycles and doesn’t want to leave town. The ducks inevitably leave, Alphonse goes back to Paris, and Jeremy stays in his house, but all of them depart to something new.

Cute. Ambitious. Exceptionally understated. Rather like being young (forgive me if I sound old), you have to dig around a little to find the point.  That's not a bad thing.   This is one of those films where what happens off screen is as important as that which we see.  Ok, so it's not perfect.  It's so tightly written that it suffers a little from being a little too sparse.  The characters are really strong and, for me, really well played.  I like these two, and I'd like to see more of them.

 The Ducks' Migration is an irresistible metaphor portraying the succumbing of youth, yet the beauty of maturity. Hidalgo's use of clever cinematography combined with geometrical shots throughout is a pleasure to witness. Acting is sub standard which let it down - would have been worthwhile to have it as a silent movie.
