THE PAINTED BIRD in cinemas nationwide (UK & Ireland) from 27 March 2020 – POSTPONED
***RELEASE POSTPONED TILL LATER IN THE YEAR***
After much consideration, and in light of the Government’s latest advice regarding the ongoing and developing situation concerning the Coronavirus, Eureka Entertainment have decided to delay the forthcoming release of The Painted Bird until a date later in the year, when there will have a better understanding of the impact of this pandemic.
Managing Director for Eureka Entertainment, Ruth Schofield commented “We understand that this decision will cause inconvenience and disappointment to many, but ultimately, we want to make the socially responsible decision for the health and safety of everybody”
Directed, written and produced by Marhoul, The Painted Bird, 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. The film has won ecstatic acclaim, with The Guardian’s Xan Brooks describing the film as “a monumental piece of work” rewarding the film with a five-star review. The film is also one of ten films that has advanced to the next round of voting in the International Feature Film category (formerly known as Foreign Language Film) for the 92nd Academy Awards. Ninety-one films were eligible in the category.
The film follows the journey of a boy, entrusted by his Jewish parents to an elderly foster mother in an effort to escape persecution. Following a tragedy, the boy is on his own. 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 the boy. When the war ends, the boy has been changed, forever.
Shot in crisp black and white 35mm – Václav Marhoul’s The Painted Bird does far more than simply depict the horror of war. It is an unflinching examination of the very worst of humanity.
