Must see.
20 February 2012 | by (Glasgow) – See all my reviews

An intensely moving, humbling, but most of all, inspiring experience. At the end I couldn't believe that an hour and a half had passed. I was totally entranced by this sensitive portrayal of these fascinating people's lives. I came to this film with very little knowledge about how a deaf-blind person might be able to communicate, so it was an education. On the one hand (or rather two) there was the extraordinary tactile language of playing each others hands like pianos. On the other, the wonderful state of the art technology which allows books to be read on a braille equivalent of the Kindle. The film-makers manged, in my opinion, to keep a delicate balance between the practical and the emotional. Never sentimental or maudlin, the documenting of the achievement of what most of us take for granted, through loving cooperation, was deeply touching. They have a lot to teach us about appreciation, patience and positivity.
