Storyline

The Story: 170 Hz is a film about unconditional love and the freedom that goes with it. Nick and Evy are two adolescents who fall hopelessly in love with each other. Their love has no voice or sound as they are both deafmute. They have their own ways of communicating with each other, so while being in love already makes them stand apart from the rest of the world, in the splendid isolation of their soundless love they distance themselves from their surroundings even more. When they sense that their parents do not fully agree with them being together, they develop an audacious plan: they will flee and hide in a special place, where Evy will become pregnant and have a baby - they are convinced that once they have a child together nothing and nobody will be able to keep them apart. Nick takes the initiative and drives off with Evy to the hiding place he has meticulously prepared, the wreck of a former Soviet submarine in a distant part of the harbour. Within that metal casing full of ... Written by Joost van Ginkel

impossible love
26 October 2012 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Maybe I am too old to appreciate '170 Hz', but this very Dutch film has a psychology that does not appeal to me.

According to all praise it got (which induced me to watch), there must be some public for films like these.

Anyway, its theme isn't unusual at all: an impossible love, due to the different social backgrounds of its partners. The only original and praise-worthy element in '170 Hz' is its use of an obsolete submarine to emphasize the isolation of the love-couple. In the end the girl swims away from this vessel, symbolizing the inevitable break-up.

Apart form that, '170 Hz's shooting could have been better. The acting of its male and female lead is hardly adequate as well. Whatever its official selections in Busam, Shanghai, Moscow and Seattle, '170 HZ' surely is a film to forget.
