Longhaired 42-year-old Mark Bittner, like the parrots who fly over San Francisco, is an anomaly: a penniless North Beach dharma bum living in one of the city’s most expensive neighborhoods and devoting himself (without pay) to studying the wild birds that flock the city. The film is a beautiful and eccentric love story of an articulate, formerly directionless man and the parrots he names and befriends. All of these threads combine to tell a single tale of bonding, goodbyes and self-discovery that comes to a satisfying—and delightful—conclusion.
