Pelican Blood Movie Trailer

Wait, what's this? An actual post! Watch the trailer below for the British film, Pelican Blood, based on the novel by Cris Freddi. The main character is a birder or a twitcher as the case may be. Warning: Foul language.

Hey, welcome back!
But frankly, a video link isn't really what we were all waiting for...

You want baby photos? I did find a Western Grebe a few weeks ago here in NJ...

Jochen said...

YES, we want baby photos - or more precise: stroller photos!

And yes, a Western Grebe in NJ seems like a blog-worthy topic as well.

Well, I've never seen one in NJ.
I have also never seen NJ, so there you have it.
Wait - I did: from NYC's Liberty Island - no grebe though but my life and only Laughing Gulls!

I reviewed this book a few years ago--in Birding, maybe?--and have been eagerly awaiting the movie. I only wish it came with English subtitles.
Happy Thanksgiving!

So I take it you liked the book, Rick? I'll have to add it to my reading list.

Rick said...

Yes, liked it very much. A bit of Camus here, a little Dostoyevsky there, but very powerful when all is said and done. And a great glimpse into twitcher culture, which is like nothing in existence on this side of the Atlantic.

I can only hope this film makes it to St. Catharines, ON (usually they only get to Toronto).

Smashing soundtrack! I heard Metric's (Canadian indie-rock band) 'Monster Hospital' in the trailer.

Thanks for sharing. I'll have to look for the novel as well.
