Critic Reviews for Tickling Leo
The Holocaust new wave continues with Tickling Leo, this time drawing on a little-known historical footnote as the haunted backdrop for an otherwise tepid contemporary drama.
Although strongly acted and deeply felt, writer-director Jeremy Davidson's arcanely titled Tickling Leo is too theatrically conceived and diffusely told to satisfy its lofty aspirations.
Director Jeremy Davidson's father-son tale is refreshingly edgy and well-acted, but painfully obvious in almost every other way.
The film's rich performances, in which every shade of every character's emotions registers, can go only so far to camouflage the glaring lapses in a drama that often confuses hints and allusions with coherent storytelling.
So earnest and likable, you want to just give it a pat on the head and send it on its way. Unfortunately, it's just not terribly compelling.
