The prejudices of our days
26 October 2019 | by Edreboucas-brSee all my reviews

This movie is the perfect embodiment of the novel I read in my youth. and that changed my life. It reveals in detail all the horrors of the prejudices so present today, where the painted birds are all those people disrespected for being poor people, migrants of other races, gender orientation or ideologies. A movie about the world TODAY.
