Definitely Worth Viewing
10 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I had not heard of this film and the actors are not household names. What you have here is a moving story about the loss of innocence, pain and anguish, suffering and forgiveness. A little film with a big and universal message.

"The Unseen" depicts the worst and best of our natures. Kudos to Lisa France for her story and for the cast which brought this work to life. You should definitely make a date to see "The Unseen".

"The Unseen" reminds me of "To Kill A Mockingbird" and "Crash" for its substance and theme. The narration and acting by Philip Block as the blind man Sammy brings clarity to the viewer as the past and present are compellingly linked together. Treat yourself to this fine film.
