"Taffy Was Born" is a well-made little independent mystery that actually looks much bigger it's budget. The writing is sharp, the camera work first rate and the casting is perfect. The story concerns a troubled man returning to his small town after being away many years. He hopes to get back to things and get his life together after a series of hard knocks. But his begin to unravel as people begin to appear more and more uneasy with him. Just why are they behaving this way? The first half of the film moves as leisurely, ambient pace letting us take in the town and it's characters but then it begins to quicken and by that time you're hooked wondering just what is going to happen and just who is "Taffy". This is certainly not your run-of-the-mill narrative film and will keep you guessing.
