Simplistic story of depth. . .
16 January 2006 | by Joseph HadleySee all my reviews

I attended the San Francisco premiere of "Eyes of a Child" and was struck by the depth within the simple story about the imagination of a little girl. The filmmaker, Delphine Suter, did a superb job in bringing the audience into the world of Beatrice (the little girl) without hitting us over the head with obvious choices. The editing had much to do with the subtlety of switching from reality to imagination, relying on skillful editing rather than special effects. Another great aspect of the film was the sound. Both the sound design and music successfully played into the emotional state of Beatrice, slowly pushing the audience into her same mindset.

The cinematography was excellent as well. . .it is clear that both the director and DP were in tune with the emotional state they wanted to portray. The decision to shoot the reality-based scenes less colorfully than the imagination-based scenes is subtle, yet evoking. Overall, I would recommend that people watch this film if they get a chance. Excellent job!
