The Hawks and the Sparrows is a 1966 Italian film directed by Pier Paolo Pasolini. It tells a story about an old man, his son, and a talking crow. The old man, Toto (Antonio De Curtis), and his son Ninetto (Ninetto Davoli), take a long walk down a deserted road and throughout Rome. They meet the talking crow who tells them a story about two friars (also played by Curtis and Davoli). In the story, the friars preach a message of love to hawks and sparrows. They teach the animals to love their own kind, but are unable to convince them to love the other species. The father and son continue their journey during the story, and the crow follows and continues talking to the two. However, they find the crow dull and difficult to bear. The father and son face hardships along the road, and they meet various people who treat them with rudeness and hostility.
