Small Voices works, even though its lesson has been pounded into you a hundred times before.
Despite its inherent predictability, the film nonetheless succeeds in its modest aims, thanks in large part to the director's fresh approach to his timeworn themes and to de Rossi's engaging performance as the committed teacher.
Small Voices is a trip to another culture that is enjoyable, even inspiring, in spite of its faults.
Educators everywhere should be grateful for such an effective and affecting demonstration of the power of formal schooling to combat poverty and change lives.
Small Voices features an excellent cast.
This tiny film is heartfelt, well made and worthy of attention.
It wants to have its cake and eat it, too, wishing to be inspirational and satirical in the same breath but managing mostly to be derivative and mawkish.
Like the white shirts worn by its students, this film is crisp. It's also more than a little humbling.
Presents its case with conviction and a reasonable amount of insight.
The setting is unfamiliar, but the story is all too commonplace...a well-meaning but feeble little tale.
If only they tried a little more to make it less trying...a spoonful of sugar may help the medicine go down, but a 5-gallon sack just makes you sick.
Strives to tell a unique story, but ends up only with the same hokey, follow-your-dreams platitudes peddled by mainstream American cinema.
