| You will be touched, moved and inspired.....don't miss it !
This is a wonderful movie. It is unique and fresh in so many ways....the depth of the story is mesmerizing. The viewer is subtly drawn into the story without Hollywood stunts or even verbal dialog. It's simple, yet elegant. It is masterful in the way in which the viewer participates in the story. It is impossible to remain passive in the viewing in that the viewer must 'read' and 'look' and 'listen to the music' and infer what is 'between the lines'. As such, the viewer is 'drawn in'. The interesting effect of this, is that the viewing experience is somehow richer and effect deeper than in a 'standard' movie format. The movie draws the viewer into the inner world of the deaf, as well as into the viewer's own inner world. This film never treats the deaf as 'other' or as a stereotype....the characters are real people with strengths and weaknesses. This is a heartfelt movie which stirs the heart and even the very soul of the viewer.
