Quotes

Christine Garland: [Voiceover] They all told us; in the most reassuring way, there was nothing to be done about it. Mandy would never hear, she would never be able to imagine what sound was like, so naturally, she would be dumb too. To the doctors it was an interesting case, but not at all unusual. One child in every sixteen thousand is born that way, and they explained that all over the country we should fined special schools, day schools or residential.

Wow... what a great movie!!
17 May 2008 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I'm really a movie fan. Watch as much movies as I can. Though I'm never really interested in movies from the 50's. But this movie turned that all around. "Mandy" is a great movie that is a must see! Mandy Miller has a stunning role and plays it really great! The whole story line in this movie is unique, still to this day. It's a movie like I've not seen before. Especially because the movie is from way back, it's great to see that there were already great minds behind this movie. And I can't say it enough, the role that Mandy Miller plays is stunning!

If you have the opportunity to watch this movie, watch it! I give it a big 10 out of 10.
