This movie talks about the idea of trauma at the most delicate level, I don’t know how it manages to create that space of terror, but the result is overwhelming. A deaf-mute young man is co-opted from Latin America by a Brooklyn Christian school with a scholarship program, but arrived at the scene, is silently witnessing a trafficking organization that operates with deaf-muted beggars.
The film’s convention reminds of Guy Maddin’s cinema, fragrant with Eraserhead, the sound being mastered in such an experimental manner that we get to see the world through the protagonist’s senses – a black-and-white reality with dazzled sounds as the film vibrates and communicates through the decibels of a figurative bass that outlines half the identity of the story.
Somehow this movie is “The Saddest Music in the World” in the parameters of a world where the lack of sound produces a subliminal fear that latently absorbs color, not accidentally the film being in black and white and the protagonist more particularized by scars that deconstruct its reality.
