Storyline

Larry Pearce is a dour office worker in a phone answering company who is having problems getting over the recent death of his young son from a rare brain disorder. Larry's grief has somehow triggered his acute sense of hearing 20-fold which he can hear a whispered conversation from hundreds of feet away. But his ability soon affects his sanity as he learns he cannot control it and all efforts to block out sound are futile, which puts a strain on his long-suffering wife Brenda, who unlike him, cannot stand quiet. As as result, Larry's slow slide into insanity because of his gift/curse of sensitive hearing and inability to deal with the grief of the loss of his son, leads to more tragedy for all involved.

30 Minutes Too Long ...
22 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This 1 hour movie is more like a 30 minute Twilite Zone episode. That is, it has an interesting premise, but is 30 minutes too long.

The story revolves around an individual with an acute sense of hearing. He can hear all the sounds that normal people either filter out or can't hear - everything from drops of water to light bulbs and heartbeats. The story involves how this 'ability' becomes more and more a problem after the tragic loss of his son.

The story gives a cool glimpse into this special individual's world, but at the expense of story. It just goes on and on and the story doesn't progress very much. After about 30 minutes, 40 minutes, etc. you're still waiting for things to happen.

If you want a treat - watch the first 30 minutes, then come back for the last 5. If you're looking for a worthwhile 1 hour experience, skip this one.
