Great little film with a lot of heart and a good message at its centre.
12 February 2003 | by JoshB-2See all my reviews

Silver Man isn't a big screen box office smash. It's an independent film made in Canada, but it still boasts beautiful locations, a great story, and some excellent acting.

Firstly, let me just say that Eugene Levy (American Pie) absolutely steals the show with his performance as a Jewish gangster who is conflicted about killing people on the Sabbath or before his son's upcoming Bar Mitzvah.

The story centres around a guy who calls himself Silver Man (Paul Popowich). He works the promenade as a busking violinist, his skin covered from head to toe in an eery silver gleam. It's not makeup, however, and Silver Man has carried this abnormality his entire life, always being judged not for who he is, but what he looks like. Silver Man falls in love with the girl (literally) next door to his apartment, Tivoli (Audrey Lupke) who is miserable in her relationship with Jake (Derik Hamilton), her violent, abusive, but strangely charismatic (to her, anyway) boyfriend.

With an impressive cast that also includes Joe Pantiolano (The Fugitive, The Matrix), Daniel Baldwin, and Louise Fletcher (One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest), Silver Man is a charming little love story with a bit of action, and is definitely worth seeing.
