The hummingbird is a bird that is resistant to the blows of the winds, which, thanks to its constant flapping of its wings, manages to stay at a fixed point in space. The same can be said for the hero of the novel. New feature film from Italian Francesca ArchibugiA man anchored in unfounded immobility and unable to surrender to life’s ups and downs. The film traces his existence from the cradle to the grave, jumping back and forth in time throughout his life, contemplating moments of joy and sadness, and the result is a mystery. pretentious but essentially banal melodrama.

‘Hummingbird’ places great emphasis on its non-linear plot, and this narrative method becomes more problematic than advantageous. Despite Archibugi’s attempts to describe the different periods of the story through the actors’ make-up and prosthetics, it does not just confuse the viewer’s perception of time. Moreover makes it difficult to feel an emotional connection with misfortunes and the emerging hero’s experiences despite his efforts to exaggerate sentimentality with dramatic tricks: for example, the overuse of chance and the whims of fate in the plot. His portrait is ultimately nothing more than a sketch.
