Echoes of the magnificent THE TIN DRUM reverberate through the stunning, lyrical French-Canadian LEOLO.
The late Jean-Claud Lauzon's masterwork filters a dysfunctional family through the eyes of a dreamer who imagines himself to be Italian.
The film is filled with gorgeous cinematic studies of childhood cruelty, sexual abuse, eccentricity, first love, first self-love, insanity, obsession, unusual uses for meat products, and familial bonds.
As Leolo, Maxime Collin is without peer, delivering a truly amazing performance as a young boy on a difficult journey of discovery and exploration.
A wonderful Tom Waits cue anchors the soundtrack and eccentric supporting performances bring vivid color to the drama.
The film is photographed and directed with such amazing precision and passion that you can not help but be propelled by it.
In every sense an original, emotional work. ..."and then there was The Word Tamer..."
An unsung classic.
