Great carácter, she explains everuthing because she´s afraid of being alone, that´s the drama of deaf blind people. You can understand it just seeing them interacting between them.
View all Land of Silence and Darkness reviews
This moving documentary by director Werner Herzog enters into the world of Fini Strabinger of Bavaria, who is both deaf and blind. Fini has made a career of helping others who are similarly afflicted, teaching them sign language and taking them on field trips to gardens and touching zoos. Told in an unaffected, homey style, this film uses a minimum of narration as it movingly explores the lives of these people. One of the film's highlights is footage showing Fini's reactions to her first airplane flight. ~ Clarke Fountain, Rovi

"Best documentary I've seen last year. Early Herzog shows us the lifes of deafblind people, how they deal with it, how they comunicate with each other, what are their problems. Heartbreaking at times. It's really interesting and has some outstanding moments. "
