Average TV-movie: not good, not bad. Nothing spectacular
26 November 2006 | by NoName1989See all my reviews

The only reason why I planned to watch this film, was the name of the film. I think "Desolation Sound" is an excellent name for a movie. It attracts the attention. I expected a lot of this film, even though it was a TV-film.

I was disappointed after seeing it.

It was't by far as good as the title sounds. The acting was mostly pretty good, the cinematography was by moments also nice and the music was pretty good to.

But in general this is an average film that is enjoyable at some moments. If you don't expect too much of it, you will find it O.K.
