a 61% chance of success
23 September 2004 | by JennvanbcSee all my reviews

A professor of silent films from Montreal heads to Mexico after a year of correspondence with a potential bride. After meeting for the first time at her doorstep, she stipulates the only way she'll return to Canada with him is if her mother joins them - so her mother can see where she will be living. From then ensues the possible diminishment of the computerized statistical evaluation of their marriage provided by their translator, rated as having "a 61% chance of success".

After Gladys (Vanessa Bauche)& Norman (Noel Burton) marry, Gladys edges her way into urban life in Montreal. She takes dance classes & begins to work in a restaurant, all while attempting to see if the intimacy that was present in Norman's letters, also exists in their daily lives together. Gladys' mother, although does not intentionally interfere, does become a distraction for Norman, by providing such simple things for him such as cutting his hair & pouring his morning cup of coffee while she reflects that her life is now a leisure one with rest & walks. The mother's loneliness is apparent to both Norman & the film viewers, as she clutches photographs during a sleepless night. From then on marks twists that effect their relationships with each other within their bizarre love triangle.

A Silent Love, though with its different languages & cultures, is actually quite universal showing human emotions. The film is funny & amusing at times, but also is a simple, heart-felt film about the nature of relationships. How loneliness can exist within them & that what one might expect & need, may be different than what is truly there.
