The beautiful biologist Alex Brisco develops a new method to communicate with chimpanzees: instead of machines she uses a simple sign language. Her research and competition with ignorant colleagues lets her overlook the amorous approaches of cellist Mark. She accepts his help, but no more, because she believes he's married. —Tom Zoerner <Tom.Zoerner@informatik.uni-erlangen.de>
This is a light romantic comedy with great shots of the University of New Mexico.
As an extra in this movie, I got to see the behind the scenes production and found myself entranced by the innate sweetness of Holly Hunter and Karen Allen. The movie is not terribly deep; however, it it is funny and provides what it was meant to: entertainment. Filmed mostly at the University of New Mexico in the early 80's, the scenery is gorgeous.
