Despite being well acted and sweetly moving when it strips down to the tender poem at its heart, Till Human Voices Wake Us spends too much time playing to an otherworldly suspense that simply isn't there.
There's a fine line between bewitching and boring, and you'd better be sure you know which side you're on if you're going to make a film that keeps a key character or event a mystery until the very end.
All the intelligence and sincerity behind the camera and the talent in front of it, Till Human Voices Wake Us stays emotionally mired because of a static screenplay that fails to express its issues dramatically.
Despite the strengths of the cast and the camera, the whole film does seem, after the fact, to be less than the sum of its parts. Nevertheless, in mid-reverie, there's no denying the pleasure in falling under its little spell.
