Storyline

The story of two Mumfords - one a small town, the other a man. Mumford, the town, is full of people with problems, from a teenage girl who is unhappy with her looks to a local billionaire, "the king of modems", who would trade everything away if he could. So when Micky Mumford, the man, turns out to be a psychologist with slightly unusual methods he soon finds a spot in people's heart as someone to whom they can tell their secrets. But Micky too has a secret, and that one's about to hunt him down. Written by CyberRax

Making a difference
4 October 1999 | by (Eatontown, NJ, USA) – See all my reviews

This is an odd and interesting film about a man who has

the innate ability to listen to people. When he listens,

people reveal their secret lives and take off their masks.

This is the result of an almost Christ-like empathy that

he has. Yet, ironically, he himself doesn't want to face

himself.

The film makes that point that we are who we think we are.

It portrays Socrates' ancient motto "Know Thyself" in a

very entertaining and intriguing way. The film seems to

tell us that genuine human connection is the best form of

therapy. A thoughtful and thought-provoking movie -- see

it if you can.
