I've been waiting for a long time for this movie to be listed here. Caught it around 11 p.m. a LONG time ago on channel 9, KHJ-TV in Los Angeles, before it became KCAL(talk about dating yourself). I only saw it the one time, but, darnit, this should be seen by anyone who considers going into directing. The story of a young boy growing up in a contemporary Mexican village, who has an almost disabling sensitivity to any loud noise, who desperately seeks some outlet--any outlet--for his budding musical talent and finds it with help from an old man who lives on the outskirts of town and plays a haunting violin...well, they don't make them like that here, nowadays. The film's beguiling story line, the sedate, almost ethereal pace, together with an almost complete lack of spoken dialogue is a standing challenge for any budding filmmaker up here in El Norte to match what he did. If you see it in you local listings, PLEASE set your VCR. You'll be glad you did.
