It's deliciously risky, though Ferran falls far short of Icarus' folly, soaring low and returning to earth having risked too little.

Viewed from a certain angle, "Bird People" is a very sad movie. But it's also a lark.

This is a wisp of a movie, and yet it deals with an experience so pervasive that it's usually barely acknowledged-this restlessness people feel to fly off to somewhere else.

An airport hotel may not seem the most inspiring of locations for a story of life-changing consequence, but French filmmaker Pascale Ferran's delicate, compassionate "Bird People" is just that sort of risk-taking existential adventure.

Two lost souls flock together, sort of, in an ambitious French film that takes flight in some highly unusual ways.
