'David Gallego’s cinematography renders an absurdly beautiful desolation, colors splashing and popping against bleached sandy neutrals. Naturalistic performances from the entire cast aid in the film’s authentic feeling, but the poetry of the directors’ use of long shots and the singing voiceover give Birds of Passage the tone of folklore.' Hope Madden, UK Film Review
'The crime saga is reimagined in the tribal lands of north Colombia in this vivid, distinctive film from the makers of Embrace Of The Serpent.' Christina Newland, Sight & Sound
