Critic Reviews for The Five Senses
A story like Five Senses sounds like a gimmick, but Podeswa has a light touch when dealing with the senses and a sure one when telling his stories.
The second feature by the openly gay Canadian director interweaves in a rather schematic mode but with elegant style the stories of five troubled characters, each standing for one of the senses.
[A]n uncomfortable, poignant, and often ineffably sad film about death, loss, and loneliness, much of which is left unresolved.
You'll probably think in a new way about the sounds and the music, the look of places and people, how much or little you take note of the scents and sensations of daily life.
This engaging and tightly constructed drama explores the role of the senses in the lives of a group of Canadians.
Audience Reviews for The Five Senses
The Five Senses is your (mostly) typical indie urban drama with intersecting lives and stories. The vibe is very late nineties and overall it is nicely done in terms of acting and directing. Something about it makes me rate it a bit higher than films like "13 Conversations About One Thing". I think (contrary to some other reviewers) that it has more heart and a better sense of humor than similar dramas.
I like movies that make me think - especially when they interweave the characters
Another good Indie effort.
