What a remarkable film! "The Secret Life of Words" grows on you little by little, at a steady and constant relaxed pace, throwing at you intriguing images and sounds from the very beginning that will get you hooked wondering until the very end.
Isabel has done it again, an emotional "rollercoaster" that gets to you in a devastating way. We needed this movie!
This movie could have been called "The Forgotten". Why we prejudice people we don't know simply because they behave differently, in ways we do not understand? How come we pretend to understand certain things that we cannot even imagine to be happening in the world?
The story of Hannah is the story of the millions that have been forgotten, but that walk with us every day.
Subtle and brilliant. Fine and devastating.
My admiration to Isabel for her bravery and talent. A terrific next film after "My Life Without Me".
The cast is wonderful! Sarah Polley and Tim Robbins are absolutely fantastic. What a performance! Julie Christie is great too (she sure got the great lines!). Thank you, thank you all.
Entertaining in a meaningful way.
All the best to your film Isabel!!
