How much emotional impact can a single touch have? And, have you ever wondered what the beauticians say about you? Touch gives us an insight into the daily goings on in a nail salon. It also presents understated and believable characters, where often what goes unsaid matters the most. That said, the dialogue is powerful and interesting enough to keep you guessing as to what the eventual outcome might be. It is a case of enjoying the journey, as each of the characters slowly reveals more of him or herself. Nguyen is a storyteller and a gifted director, one to watch out for.
Thanks to Minh Duc Nguyen and Melissa Tong.
It's an impressive feature debut by a skilled filmmaker with some surprising, nuanced performances in its two lead actors.
