Simple story, Compulsive viewing
17 December 2001 | by (Hong Kong) – See all my reviews

I was really impressed with this feature. It is very much a simple visual treat, and an emotional and inspiring story.

India is an exceptionally talented dancer living with her brother and scarcely making ends meet. She is a mute and encounters various problems in her daily life and also in gaining employment as a dancer. This is a well acted and beautifully shot film. Jarrod Bunch in particular gives real gravity to the marginal character Bruno, makes him seem like a real person! It holds a European flavour but fits in the New York mould perfectly. I suggest that this will be enjoyed by most folk. It's a triumph of the human spirit film, without cheese. It is in a word exceptional.
