Basically, this is a movie that for all intents and purposes, doesn't
quite exist. I don't remember having heard anything about the movie,
but came across it by accident while flipping through the movie
listings on TV. And that is a shame! Okay, it hasn't gone completely
unnoticed, as the tumblr blog people have an extensive post about it.
Synopsis: young brilliant musician goes into a deep depression with the
death of his wife and stops music. Instead he spends his time in the
hotel room where he first met her, waiting for her to call. A young
woman, who doesn't want him to see her face and who lost several years
of her youth to being in a coma, forms a friendship with him through
the bathroom door. And, like magic, and with the help of the kindly
chess playing hotel desk man, the two eccentric people tentatively and
quirkily begin to live. He, again, she for the first time.
And it is the quirkiness that I can see being a thumbs down for some.
Why? I've been struggling to articulate my thoughts, but it comes to
what may be an odd split in the human population between those who
delight in Magical Realism versus those who delight in cartoon violence
or the un-magical realism of saccharine sentimental (happy / sad)
movies. The emotional life of the characters is brought forward in the
storytelling through exaggerated setting and character. So the young
woman struggling to find her place in the world hides in the bathroom
of the man having lost his place. Each have erected a wall between
themselves and the world which, by the magic of life, is embodied in
the locked bathroom door.
And thus we see a visual metaphor dance around the theme of
finding/losing/rediscovering one's voice. The metaphor is re-enforced
with the subplot of the young musician who has to struggle to keep his
own musical voice while it is being excoriated by the good-intentioned
And, in the best of a magical realism typical of many Canadian writers,
such as Barbara Gowdy and Margaret Atwood, the theme is explored in
different ways. The young woman begins to find her voice using mute
media: she uses film frames clipped from the movies she's paid by a
theatre company to project and, with a kind of homage to Timothy
Findley's novel Famous Last Words, journal writing on the wall of her
loft that she would paint over until the day she met Sam.
This is a fun movie. The directing kept it light, and the performances
by the leads are engaging and don't fall into maudlin sentimentality.
Forest Whitaker as their unassuming spiritual guide was perfect in the
role. The filmography is good and contributes to the story with its own
subtle quirkiness. And the music is also excellent. As is noted,
Charlie Winston contributes perfectly to the sound track, including
Rupert Friend's extemporaneous blues/jazz 'hit' I'm in Love With a
Post Review: This movie participated in a delightful little
synchronicity that, for the curious can be found at egajd.blogspot.com
