With impressive intimacy, "Snail" depicts what has to be of the most endearing relationships portrayed in a documentary I've seen in some time. The manner in which the pair respect each other, laugh with one another - despite the complications of their situation - works as a significant testament to the potential of the human spirit and the power of love. It also gives a clear window into the lives of people facing what could clearly be a brutally lonely disability.
Sounds cheesy, but for me it was a beacon of optimistic energy amidst an intensely foggy, admittedly hungover afternoon in Amsterdam. I'm sure "Snail" is heading to every documentary film festival it wants to from hereonin, so definitely look for it.
