Eventually, he teaches the girl to speak correctly but is taken away by her father because he believes the girl cannot distinguish fantasy from reality because she believes the bird can talk. Paulie goes through a series of adventures with a pawn shop owner, an aging widow, a Mexican-American troubadour and a would be thief before being taken to the institute where he now lives

Dave C (au) wrote: This small film focuses on Jeff Buckley being asked to come to New York to take part in a tribute show to his father Tim.Jeff never knew Tim nor liked him and the way he hovers around walking out provides the tension as he finally finds his voice and finally gets something from the father who ran away.The music actually played in the film is of great quality and although I would guess the film has/had little appeal outside of fans, it is actually very moving.

Clive F (jp) wrote: Personally, I found this to be a rather boring flick. It had me going for the first half, but I was expecting some sort of plot twist that never happened. It was like a long, slow build with no real climax. Honestly, it became hard to watch.
Ben G (jp) wrote: Good war film, very dark, a few good ideas, plus the interest of seeing from inside a war rarely shown on film. But ultimately not that interesting since a bunch of soldiers' daily life dominated by boredom and fear doesn't really makes for an interesting subject. Special mention for the actors who are all particularly good.

Brian B (kr) wrote: This movie was made in 1982 but it could have been made anytime in the last couple of years. The subject matter is still relevant. A president going to war to boost his ratings, crazed fanatical terrorists, scheming government types, gas over $3.00, it's all there. If it wasn't for the dark humor of this you'd think you were watching the evening news. The film does give off a "Dr. Strangelove" vibe but never reaches the level of that film.

George W (ca) wrote: This is a flawed attempt to flog a lukewarm turd. Aimed at the average 12-14 male, e.g. computers, yards of female flesh, slightly dodgy characters and piles of cash, sounds more like a rap vid, if only it had become one and not a film.
