born normal, i feel envy!
7 April 2004 | by (Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh, India) – See all my reviews

hi, i watched the movie screened by the Hyderabad Film Club HYFIC during the french film festival of this month [April 2004] a very carefully made film. a lot of research and patience should have gone into making this film. a seemingly impossible job is made possible. the way the characters communicate with each other and with the audience is superb. at some point of time i felt that 'being deaf' is a blessing in disguise as it develops tremendous visual sense and concentration.
