”Blind Loves,” which world-premiered at the 2008 Cannes Film Fest, is a film about love between blind people. Love can be soft, love can be silly, love can be blind at all times. To find ones place in this world is not an easy thing to do for people with good sight, but how much more difficult can it be for somebody who is blind The view of blind persons is often pure and essential, and very often witty. It uncovers new dimensions of meaning of happiness.
Engrossing, beautifully crafted docu “Blind Loves” features four non-sighted subjects repping a range of age and experience. They demonstrate and discuss their passions and anxieties while managing independent lives. First feature-length title from Slovak helmer Juraj Lehotsky boasts loads of low-key visual humor in its witty production design. Some charming moments play like Georges Melies crossed with Jan Svankmajer. Alissa Simon, VARIETY
A series of love stories experienced by blind people that “nothing other than cinema” turns into a moment-by-moment positive experience for the viewer, far beyond the anecdotes it’s based on. Jean-Michel Frodon, Cahier du cinema
