Truly Moving Picture
16 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am a judge for the Indianapolis-based Heartland Film Festival. This feature film is a Crystal Heart Award Winner and is eligible to be the Grand Prize Winner in October of 2007. The Heartland Film Festival is a non-profit organization that honors Truly Moving Pictures. A Truly Moving Picture "…explores the human journey by artistically expressing hope and respect for the positive values of life."

This is a charming story of romance, comedy, tragedy, mystery and fantasy set in Spain. A young girl in her twenties, Marina, and her teenage brother, Samuel, have lost their parents in an accident three years ago. Samuel has taken it hard. He hasn't left their apartment in these last three years and has created a bizarre world for himself and his once-famous literary grandfather. And his eccentricity and cleverness scares off his tutors who try to educate him. The very attractive Marina has no life as she is consumed with taking care of Samuel and working across the street as a waitress.

Marina accidentally meets up with a psychologist, Gabriel, and asks him to be her brother's tutor. Almost immediately, Gabriel has a powerful positive effect on Samuel. And Gabriel becomes smitten with Marina. The student Samuel reverses roles and begins to teach the shy Gabriel how to attract women.

Gabriel and Marina are very attractive people to the audience. We root for them and we want them to emotionally find each other. But it's not certain or easy. Marina has financial and work problems and she focuses her life on Samuel. Gabriel is just wonderfully innocent and inept.

This film is beautifully made. The cinematography, settings, direction, music and acting are incredibly appealing. And the characters ring of honesty and decency and sincerity. This feels like a Frank Capra-directed classic – but set in today's world.

FYI – There is a Truly Moving Pictures web site where there is a listing of past Truly Moving Picture Award winners that are now either at the theater or available on video.
