Actually quite an experimental film
19 March 2014 | by r-sainteclaireSee all my reviews

I know there are a lot of reviews on here that magnify the negative points in this film. So, to get some stuff out of the way, the acting and sets used in this film are awful. Pure terrible. Additionally, the start of the film is awfully jarring.

However, there are some really interesting ideas to be found here. I wont be giving anything away by saying that there are two deaf characters in this film. The way the film makers have used these two characters sign conversations are quite clever, I don't think I have seen an interaction like this before (but then I am fairly ignorant).

The development of the characters as individuals is also done in timed manner. I don't think there was a moment in the film where I asked myself "what about so and so...".

I am not sure that this is the right format for the material though. As I was watching, I felt that it could have been better conveyed as a mini series etc.

Essentially, if you don't mind losing an hour and a half out of your life and want to see something different, give it a watch.
