Humanity revealed through overcoming pain...
20 February 2012 | by (Palm Springs, CA) – See all my reviews

An age-old premise for films, but in this case a delightful cast of disconnected folks young and old - trying to make sense of what they don't know, can't do, and must live with. I saw this at the Palm Springs Film Festival and found myself enchanted. Clearly the work of a master storyteller, Arturo Ruiz. Colm Meaney (Mark O'Reilly) pulls us in from the beginning, silently, and each character projects their own story of who they think he is and why he's there. With no way to verbally communicate we see, in the case of the two young people he befriends, his compassionate nature and sensitivity through actions and the innate intelligence he helps them discover in themselves. Powerful performance by Ana Wagener. In short - a study in the power and pitfalls of imagination. Loved every minute.
