Nuanced, Entrancing Indie Gem, Straithairn, Gillies shine !!
Paul B. Roisum | On The Beach,U.S.V.I. USA | 09/09/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The previous writer does give away too much. A Sweet film that reveals more meaning with each viewing. I've seen this gem a half a dozen times and it does not disappoint with repeated viewings. Instead it rewards you with it's subtle nuanced craftsmanship and vision The ensemble cast hits on all cylinders. Straithairn is brilliant in a dark,yet somehow comic departure from some of his more stereotypical roles. Daniel Gillies is electric. There is nothing here to indicate the shoestring budget, beautifully filmed by award winning cinematographer Christophe Lansberg .First time writer / director Aaron Weidersphann brings together the whimsy of Capra, the pathos of Wes Anderson and the biting wit of Charlie Kaufman to this must see Indie delight. Like a sumptuous feast for the spirit."
A Film to Savor

"I found this film to be poetic, thoughtful, and beautifully shot. It invites you from the very beginning to slow down and experience an intricately layered story on its own terms. Strathairn gives an amazing performance as a troubled English teacher searching for answers to a tragedy he's witnessed, and the rest of the excellent cast--Jane Adams is my favorite--help lead him toward the healing he seeks."
A film you will never forget

"Seeing The Sensation of Sight the first time was like meeting a quiet, brilliant and intense person who fascinated you. The more you watch this movie, the more drawn in and exhilarated you are by it and what it says about life. I couldn't wait to see it again; the second time was even better. It makes you look at the world and your own life in a new way; there are few films these days that change your perspective on life and death, but The Sensation of Sight does exactly that. I highly recommend it."
