Really expressive of repressed emotion. Loaded moments of silence. A difficult subject very well portrayed by superb acting. Clever and original filming. Great acting. Good portrayal of the loneliness and isolation of feeling different. What a surprising film – riveting. Thanks goodness for subtitles. Brilliant. Brilliant acting. Great music, USA we never see in other films. Honest. Sensitive portrayal of an individual and his place in a hostile world. Some moving moments – but the story was pre-determined sociology. Some good acting. Needed the subtitles. Sad, but left with some hope for the future … Thought provoking. Sad. Hard, really real man. Touching story of the little boy behind the big man. Very good acting although very predictable and could have been done in half the time. Just needed to rev up a bit. Great descriptive music! The silences just got tedious and sleep inducing! Even with the subtitles much of the dialogue was a mystery! Did a member of the human race spend time on that?
