Storyline

Ian is an eccentric, late twenties introvert on the verge of falling for his deceivingly happy-go-lucky co-worker, Maxine. Although both admit an attraction to each other, a strange void of physical contact persists until a breakfast invitation triggers a day of discoveries that push Ian's desires to the point of an unusual and intimate proposal. Humorous and sensitive, caring and quirky, "The Touch" is a heartfelt glimpse into an elusive romance that culminates in an uncommon finale of sexual tension and emotional uncertainty when Ian and Max risk their feelings and their friendship by daring to cross a uniquely intimate line.

A must see film in the exploration of human connection
12 July 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This is a unique story that explores the relationship between two individuals with very different and opposed personalities.

I found much of the film to be exquisite as it displayed the awkwardness of human contact at what may or may not be the early stages of a relationship. The simplicity of its execution allows the viewer to focus on the actors and the story without being distracted by gimmicky shots or flashy edits. The acting was very strong and both performers took their roles well. They felt like real people in a real situation with genuine concern for each other.

I really enjoyed this movie and found it quite masterful at times.
