its a film about a deaf boy that does his samaritan duty to help people in despair, but in this case he helps and hides a murderous criminal in a building near his home. its not a happy boy , being bullied at school and messed around by his father who treats him like a thorn in the ay, the boys mother is a passive bystander not knowing what to do and his sister is a bigger star to the father than he will ever be. this leads to a deep and emotional connection to the criminal, and the boy does all of his might to feed, take care of and protect his new figure of trust.
its a drama with some indirect crime put into it, the location and setting hits a bullseye to tell a harsh and bitterly sad story. the narrative are heavily based on what a deaf child would percept from his sourroundings, so far well done. the cast does an above average job, the child acting are great, the score are subtle and grieving, and the filmatographic impression are outstandding.
its a very viewable flick of sad living, and the only major drawbback seeing this film is the slow driven pace of the plot. there are also a few inconsistensies and unrealistic takes in the story , e.g its snow on the ground all the time, and nobody sees the footprints in the snow from the evasive child hiding the fugitive, not even the police searching the premises at least 3 times.
the grumpy old man does recommend, its not funny, and doesnt suit children under 9, but may be a wake up call to everyone else
