With excellent use of film technique and character development, the film depicts cultural clashes between deaf and hearing people. This is a complicated and eye opening film for people who have no idea about American Sign Language and Deaf culture. In our society there's a chasm between those who are culturally Deaf and use American Sign Language and those who reject Deaf people and try to blend in with hearing people. I have noticed the people who vote low on this film are those that have been systematically taught to view American Sign Language and Deaf culture as inferior. Those who vote high on this film are those who have a positive view of American Sign Language and Deaf culture. Ignore those comments and judge the film for yourself.
