Within a relatively freeform story and in the company of his parents, Bodhi doesn't even seem to perform. He just is, and it is a joy to watch.

The movie's imaginative energy is undeniable, and Bodhi himself is a winning screen presence.

"The Place of No Words" clearly means so much to the tight circle of people who made it that it feels almost like an invasion of privacy to call it a depressing, charmless slog.

Like the bittersweet memory of a departed loved one, "The Place of No Words" is the kind of beast you'll instinctively remember even if you try to move on from it.

The journey through this wild, illogical imagination is delightfully charming, and sure to tug at even the stiffest of heart strings.
