Birdsong (2012) - Drama | History | Romance

Birdsong (2012) - BAD MOVIE

  What a wasted opportunity. That should have been a fantastic 2 part drama. But it so wasn't. I could have spent that 3 hours ironing. Or sleeping. Or staring deeply into my lovers eyes trying to find the words to... to.. to... OH FOR GOODNESS SAKE!
  The story was laid out so badly, you don't know how one character got to the place they were in a relationship, and there was no build-up whatsoever. Scenes jumped back and forth and there was no logical sequence of events. It's also full of idiocy. Soldiers in the tunnels wear full kit despite the heat and enclosed space. The lovers leap straight to oral sex (in 1910!) in a Bad Sex Award-winning performance. The protagonist acts like an ass (drawing his revolver on a subordinate, psychologically tormenting a man caught sleeping on duty).
   In summary then, one to avoid and read the book instead.
