This film, this world is so passing strange -- yet I could not help but enter it fully. This immersive experience put me in a dream state while simultaneously engaging my intellect and challenging my assumptions. All this while my heart was in my throat. No Mas.

An amazing plot and group of cast

Cristina Gallego and Ciro Guerra's 'Birds of Passage' is frustratingly slow moving and somewhat lacking in characters, but it's also a methodically smart film filled with captivating imagery and a fresh, underrepresented perspective of the world.

Spirituality, traditions, vandetta and drug cartels define this thrilling action-drama. Guerra offers a taste of the real Colombia, which you will never forget.

Not my cup of tea - no redeeming characters, in fact I began to dislike the main characters (never good), and it was super slow moving - for no reason. Not great acting, and only 5 or 10 percent in Spanish. Plus it was set in the desert - like a desolate ugly brown desert with no vegetation so you couldn't even enjoy the tropics. And, it was violent. If it's an authentic depiction of the native tribes who sold out to create the drug trade in Colombia, who cares. Una verguenza. Big waste of time.

A well written unique movie that takes us deep into the culture of Indigenous Colombians, their clan, pride and ego. Cinematography and design are spot on.

An ambitious crime tale, narratively flawed, but always respectful of the Wayuu culture, "Birds of Passage" explores themes of family, honor, violence and identity with solid results.

Esta historia muestra la gran madures que a alcanzado Ciro guerra como director y lo posiciona como uno de los representantes mas grandes del cine colombiano, para Pajaros de Veranos su impecable ejecución da como resultado un film para la historia del cine Colombiano y un gran tributo a la diversidad de culturas en la guajira.

Poco a poco vamos despegándonos de esas producciones mediocres adheridas a la comedia.

Otra gran película de Cristina y de Ciro, esta vez sobre la historia de la bonanza "marimbera" en la Guajira y su efecto devastador sobre la cultura de los indígenas Wayú. La película se divide en Cantos, siendo los primeros los mejores, los que hablan más sobre la cultura Wayú. En los últimos cantos, que van sobre la guerra entre clanes que desató la codicia y avaricia por el negocio de la marihuana, los personajes se diluyen y la forma en que concluyen sus historias no es acorde con lo que se presentó en los primeros cantos. Sin embargo, se trata de una muy buena película, con muy buenos actores, gran papel de John Narváez (Moisés), Juan Bautista (Aníbal) Carmińa Martínez (Úrsula), José Vicente Cotes (Palabrero)y de José Acosta (Rapayet). Y a todo esto se le suma una cinematografia de rechupete.
