Francis Nielsen's 2003 French film The Dog, the General, and the Birds is the beautifully animated story of a retired Russian general who faces retaliation from Saint Petersburg's birds for having misused them decades earlier while securing a victory against Napoleon's army. The old man faces a daily bombardment of bird droppings during his morning walks until he finds protection and redemption in the form of a persistent stray dog. Nielsen's Chagall-inspired backgrounds are the perfect complement to a magical and poignant tale. In French with subtitles. 75 min.
