Hiding with the blind
7 September 2007 | by See all my reviews

A cute, blind Japanese girl has to face living on her own for the first time after the death of her father. She has a friend who comforts and helps out but generally the blind girl chooses to cut herself off from the outside world by becoming more and more reclusive. She is totally alone in her house- or at least thinks she is.

It's not exactly riveting and the pace just slightly slower than it comfortably should be.

That said, this is by no means a dull or vapid film and has at the core, a decent little plot even if the characterization is wanting.

With topics such as murder, prejudice, disability and an unusual form of sanctuary there's enough to interest and entertain for the duration. And the ending, whilst not fireworks, at least has a satisfactory resolution.
