Breach in the Silence

90 min minutes

This moving Venezuelan film is made of water and shadows and big, dark, soulful eyes—but please! Don't send cash, it's not a UNICEF commercial. A young deaf-mute who is abused in every way possible is the protagonista—we experience a journey of suffering and hard-won redemption (and oogy incesty-ness) through her unhearing eyes. The acting is superb, the plot difficult on the soul, and visually, it's spectacular. Enjoy some fresh green Washington State freedom, brace your heart, fall into its sepia splendor, and marvel. (Don't fret—she's smiling at the end. In Spanish!) (ADRIAN RYAN)
