Whole New Thing Review


Excellent
Whole New Thing treads very delicately through what could be explosive minefields of adolescent sex, student/teacher relationships, and overly permissive parents. But what could easily have turned out to be a grim morality tale is instead a penetrating, thoughtful, and sometimes funny encounter with one very interesting teenager.

Thirteen-year-old Emerson (Aaron Weber) lives in a hand-crafted Nova Scotia home with his ex-hippie environmentalist parents and has been home-schooled in their free-thinking style all his life. Family bonding consists of naked saunas, and Emerson calls his parents by their first names, Rog (Robert Joy) and Kaya (Rebecca Jenkins).

The Five Senses Review


Bad
Not to be confused with that Bruce Willis ghost story, The Five Senses is more along the lines of Kieslowski Lite. The lives of five Canadians are connected by the sensations of touch, taste, smell, sound, and sight. They all reside in the same apartment complex, not unlike the lost souls wandering through The Decalogue. Each of the protagonists are faced with a glib moral crisis which must be resolved during the seemingly endless hour-and-forty-five-minute running time.

Ruth, a professional massage therapist (Gabrielle Rose, The Sweet Hereafter), uses the sensation of touch -- get it? -- to heal a wounded relationship with her daughter's former teacher (Molly Parker, who saw, smelled, tasted, and touched dead people in Kissed).

The Five Senses Review


Good

Canadian writer-director Jeremy Podeswa assigned himself a daunting task when he stepped behind the camera to make "The Five Senses": Create a five-dimensional world of sight, sound, touch, taste and smell, in the two dimensional medium of film.

The resulting picture is penetrating metaphorical cinema that immerses the viewer in its characters' often internalized loneliness, anxiety, desire, shame and insecurity by watching them misunderstand, embrace and/or rediscover senses we often take for granted through five well-conceived, inter-connected narratives, one for each sense.

Richard (Philippe Volter) is a middle-aged French optometrist who has learned he is slowly going deaf. He makes a list of every sound he wants committed to memory before it's too late and sets out to record them in his mind. He calls his estranged wife's house just to hear his daughter answer the phone, and he becomes mesmerized while eavesdropping on a neighbor through heating ducts in his office floorboards.
