In Ingmar Bergman’s The Seventh Seal, a knight plays a game of chess against Death. In Tuesday, director Daina Oniunas-Pusić’s remarkable new film, mother Zora takes on a shape-shifting, talking parrot-like bird, a very different version of Death, bartering to save her terminally-ill daughter Tuesday’s life. But this bird, though sometimes cranky, is not malevolent, instead there to relieve people of their worldly pain. As Zora does her best to face the impending reality of her daughter's illness, the trio embark on a heart-rending journey exploring love, life, and death. Julia Louis-Dreyfus gives an unforgettable performance in a film that is simultaneously profound and funny, tragic and exhilarating. “Diana O. Pusić reaches for the stars with her feature debut”—Fionnuala Halligan, Screen International.
