The Japanese have a special affinity for birds (viz. the recent show at the Metropolitan Museum, Birds in the Art of Japan), one that reveals itself in this poetic documentary on the thousands of crows that live in Tokyo, omnivores who feast on bread, mayonnaise, noodles and anything else they can scavenge. TOKYO WAKA, a witty, brilliantly photographed paean to the crow, delights in their smart, stealthy, aggressive wiles.
