THE ORNITHOLOGIST

O ORNITÓLOGO (PORTUGAL, FRANCE, BRAZIL)

Synopsis:

Not suitable for children

Fernando, a solitary ornithologist, is looking for black storks along a river in northern Portugal, when he is swept away by the rapids. Rescued by a couple of Chinese pilgrims on the road to Santiago de Compostela, he plunges into an eerie and dark forest. But gradually, as he encounters unexpected and uncanny obstacles and people who put him to the test, Fernando is impelled to extreme actions. Little by little, he becomes a different man, inspired, multi-faceted and finally, totally enlightened.
