Draws you in then holds you in a gripped suspense
4 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Desolation Sound is a tastefully constructed thoughtful picture. It keeps you thinking long after the final credits. Haunting, spooky. I always new Jennifer Beals was good. This movie proves it. Helene Joy and Beals should work together more often. I would like to have seen more of Lothaire Bluteau. This was a good ensemble cast. The script was full of subtle nuance. I want to go to that place Desolation Sound. So beautiful to look at, a perfect place for this scary story to live. Perhaps there was too much music, although I liked the theme song. The director did a great job telling this story. I thought it was going one way then it surprised me. Really enjoyable. It just stays with you.
