I Want to Tell You Something

I Want to Tell You Something

Categories: Health and Food

I WANT TO TELL YOU SOMETHING is an emotional family story. While four-year-old Oskar has been deaf since birth, his twin brother Leo's hearing is perfect. Leo is being brought up bilingual, with sign language and spoken language. The director is himself fluent in sign language, which entails to a direct and close documentation of the brother's discoveries and learning processes. The film examines what the diagnosis "deaf" means to Oskar's hearing parents, Sandra and Stefan. Two parents. Two different reactions. And the challenge to raise the whole family in a foreign language.

this is an excellent film. I know ASL, American Sign language, and it was interesting to see how many of the Austrian Signs and the American signs were similar if not the same. This is a great film that discusses how the parents of a deaf child feels, even if i don't agree with their take on things, it was still heartwarming and an interesting watch. I will watch it again, as well as recommend it to others. More ASL/deaf movies please!
