Intriguing study of blindness - both physical and emotional
on 3 October 2000
This is a surprising little film, starring a very youthful Russell Crowe. It focuses on the traditional story of the threesome, examining the three-way relationship between a blind photographer, his obsessed housekeeper and the newcomer, played by Crowe. Whilst the hook is the oddity of a blind man taking photos of the world he can't see, it is really a study of relationships and the lies people tell within them. There are some extremely funny scenes yet the story is gripping and disturbing. The acting is restrained, the dialogue convincing and, even if it all works out a little too neatly at the end, the storyline intriguing.
