thoughtful and poignant
15 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Face takes an in depth look at relationships in all of their guises. The film delves so thoughtfully and deeply into a very specific family that it allows us all to reflect upon our own particular relationships and the choices we make and the hurdles we may or may not overcome. The performances are marvelous and nuanced. The characters are developed in a three dimensional manner that allows for ambiguity and hence interpretation. The characters seem real in their aspirations, their flaws, their wit, and their actions. In watching Face, everyone, but particularly Americans, can't help but play a mental sort of comparison game -- that was like my uncle Myron, or just like aunt Belle, or why didn't my brother handle it like that. Face becomes two stories -- the wonderful story on the screen and the internal story that creeps in over the credits about your own family. In short, Face is both beautiful and thought provoking.
