a very emotional and touching movie
19 May 2009 | by wendyspring46See all my reviews

I came to this movie by way of Heaven's Neighbors. That movie was so wonderful, that I had to find anything else by the same people. Ten minutes into Figure in the Forest you can tell that the same careful attention to story, the same emotional punch, and the same atmosphere are all present. While Heaven's Neighbors was often times light hearted, carrying you up and down on an emotional roller coaster, Figure in the Forest, because of it's subject matter, was far more somber and heavy. Yet it retains that undefinable something that pulls you in to that world and creates an empathetic bond with the characters. Figure retains those same qualities and it ties the two movies together with a common thumbprint. Of course Figure in the Forest is far from perfect, mainly due to what I can only guess was an infinitesimally small budget. While is quite obviously was not shot on film, this does lend a certain intimacy that is part of the charm. The acting, while very good, does drop in spots. Overall, however, the careful attention to story has elevated Figure far above most other movies shot on that level.
