Pelican Blood tells the story of Nikko, a funny but left-of-center young man living in London. Following a disastrous break up with his girlfriend, Stevie, he’s taking life one day at a time, throwing all his energy into his hobby: bird spotting Just as life becomes bearable, Stevie arrives back on the scene, causing a rift between Nikko and all his friends, who warn him she will destroy him. They are fully aware of how the couple first met: on a suicide website, pledging they will ‘end it all together’. As their intense, disturbing and highly sexual connection resumes, the relationship between Nikko, Stevie, his friends and his hobby are thrown into questionable chaos. Pelican Blood is a funny and passionate look at the things that make us tick, and the things we tick off the list.
User Reviews: good script. good actors. and a lot of tension. chaotic at first sigh. useful at the second. a film about friendship, refuges, love, dreams, decisions. a film like a labyrinth. about an age, romanticism in strange form, escapes out of yourself and sacrifice like border line. it could be stupid or boring if you go not know, at low level, maybe, the emotions, the insecurity, the search of the price for the list, the confusion of the feelings, the essence of small gestures. if you know or imagine the roots, taste, out of appearances, you discover that kind of indie who propose a mirror not a show. good script, good actors. and a story for reflect about the thin line between ordinaries details from the every day.
