14min | Short, Romance | 11 March 2005 (Mexico)
A young mute student goes to the movies when ditching school, but changes his mind when he meets an unemployed man who tries to communicate with him. Through messages and games, the two will make a discovery they never imagined.
It’s often that movies that deal with controversial issues hold a promise to let a bitter pill (the subject) sink nice and easy into the minds of the public. A lot of them, may i just say, are superb and the trick their makers use, which is usually sweetness, works as it should for them and us. However, this is the very first time that a movie, and a Gay themed short one too, manages to tempt the viewer into watching a very (to say the least) controversial tale in a way that is so warm and so gentle and naive, that even if you are nothing but against its ideas and morals, by the time it ends, you’re already wiping a secret tear and singing “Let Love Rule” to yourself. Watch “David” even if you are blind, it’s beautiful.
