Silent Fall (1994)

Surprisingly good movie! Set up as a classical crime story, with lots of twists in the end and a very convincing autistic boy. I didn't quite come to terms with the voice-imitation thing - this seemed so very unrealistic, at least in the dubbed German version, in which they used the voices of the adult actors when the boy imitated their voices. I strongly doubt that a high-pitched boy-voice could imitate the deep adult sounds so easily. I wonder if this is the same with the original English audio? Richard Dreyfuss was very good as the disillusioned child psychologist. Worthwile experience, I was never tempted to zap away.

Seeing that trailer made me think of "What about Bob?"... which reminded me of Charlie Korsmo (not that I ever could have remember that name, but the search function is my savior!)...

Another pretty nice actor with some memorable roles.

I know Charlie only from Hook, in which I found him and his character absolutely adorable; I was 13 when I first watched that movie, and I can still remember some of the most poignant and funny moments, though I havn't seen it in ages.

What About Bob looks funny. Silent Fall, however, is scary and not funny at all. Wink
