Round Robin

UK, 1978 (MIFF 1978)

Director: Hugh Miles

The Robin is better known to most of us as a carrier of Christmas messages than as a wild bird. But dispensing peace and goodwill is not part of the Robin's life — it spends most of its time arguing with the neighbours.

Pugnacious defender of its garden territory, the Robin has a private side to life, kept secret even from his benefactor — man.
