I saw this movie at the San Diego Movie Festival (it'll probably only be shown at festivals since it's not feature-length). If you receive a chance, see it. The storyline revolves around a woman who has lost her hearing (and ability to speak, thus the title) due to an accident. Since she says the story, we have to go with her, and it's part of the suspense that we don't really know if she's saying us everything or not. It has some humor, but it's mostly a "dreamy" sort of justification by the mute woman for her actions. What's really interesting is the sound in the movie. Since she's deaf and mute, the director chose to have some moments of silence and some isolated sounds. Some of these sounds were very effective choices - they enhanced the mood and heightened the suspense. The script is lean, the acting is perfect and the visuals are inventive yet appropriate to the saying of the story. Check this one out if you receive a chance! And hopefully we'll receive a feature-length movie from her in the future.
I'm glad I was able to drag my tired butt to see this movie on the last day of the Vail Movie Festival. I hadn't really seen Melissa Joan Hart's tv work & had no concept that she had designs to be a director, so it was difficult to know what to expect. It turns out that "Mute" is a well-crafted, sinister tiny gem. It's difficult to compare it to another movies because it is so unusual in its saying and wonderful test of sound design.In the opening scene, there is no melody or foley, so of course, the audience starts to think something is wrong. Suddenly, the lead hero introduces herself to the viewer as "Eileen Fool"...probably one of the greatest names since Hal Hartley's "Simon Grim". We quickly learn that due to a newest auto accident, she has been left deaf & mute. One of the greatest awkward moments of the movie occurs right at the beginning, when Eileen's father parades her through a roomful of wedding guests, as if she can still hear & speak.The entire movie takes zone at her perfectionist sister's wedding, which she plans to sabotage. I won't spoil the plot by saying you the reasons for her actions, but there are some deliciously cruel moments including an uncomfortable sign language interpreted wedding toast & a tiny blood on the dance floor.Since the main hero is deaf, the director and sound designer took the occasion to create some powerful choices regarding foley, melody and test of silence. The dialogue is sparse and we experience most of the wedding through Eileen's eyes with only her internal voice to tutorial us. "Mute" is like a modern day silent film, set in a Technicolor globe and Emily Hart's performance brings to mind the unbelievable acting by Nadia Sibirskaia in Kirsanoff's silent movie "Ménilmontant". Most of the storyline relies on Emily's ability to convey everything she wants to tell in her face, and she pulls it off stunningly.I also have to mention the unbelievable cinematography. Occasionally, it slips into a dreamy state and makes me wonder if what I'm seeing is true or a fiction created by the protagonist. The cinematographer's (Francis Dela Torre) rich test of color and nice skill with framing creates a remarkable mood for this film. Of course, there is no mood if the script isn't really powerful and luckily, Kristin Lipiro has written a intelligent and sharp story...all within the short time frame of 14 minutes.Melissa Joan Hart has selected her collaborators very well because the look, the words (or lack thereof) and the acting are outstanding. She clearly has a vision and an unusual one at that. I hate to sound like a cliché, but here goes, I can't wait to see her next project.
I've been in cases where physical abuse has caused me to wish revenge, settle-the-score type of thing in which I know who has the last laugh. I've been through it all, emotionally and wanted to take physical action, but have done many things to avoid those actions, as they are quite dangerous in terms of law enforcement. So I stay in my mind with these kinds of desirous thoughts/things instead and await the chance of putting the revenges in my physical storyline without being the current physical action myself, but using myself spiritually (my mind) to accomplish what Eileen accomplished in this film, at least in her mind. Sometimes if we just go there in our minds instead of acting upon our thoughts, we can feel better about what took zone and what's going to go down in order to be able to 'call it even'. I liked this short movie a lot because it was mind work to me, instead of real follow-through on her vengeful desires to receive her sister back for doing what she did. No one can take yourself away from you unless you live life by default (instead of on purpose) and let life to just happen to you. That's why focusing is so necessary to us here because we are all on our own adventure toward life or death, based on a focused choice. I love movies like this that spark the imaginations in us. I cannot tell that I fully understood this film, but the main mission was very clear, whether it was real action Eileen took or just thoughts that never led to any physical creation. Intriguing, nonetheless! Thank you director!
