Audience Reviews for Touch

½

Brendan (portrayed by John Ruby) is a mechanic desperate to save his failing marriage. He visits a nail salon, where he meets Tam (portrayed by Porter Lynn), a shy new employee who offers guidance upon Brendan's request. Along the way, their unexpected friendship provides some welcome revelations, and takes both of them as well as those around them in directions unforeseen. This is crux of 'Touch'. Directed by Minh Duc Nguyen, 'Touch' offers some of the best metaphor usage I have ever seen in a a movie. The multi-edged meaning of the film's title displays itself over and over. While the acting was above average by the mostly Vietnamese cast, Porter Lynn as Tam is a breakout star waiting to happen. As the reserved manicurist, she often communicates without saying much at all. This truly was a tour de force for her, and I look forward to see what the future holds for her. The screenwriters weave an intricate allegory that will keep you thinking about the movie long after you've stopped watching it. 'Touch' is a unique, emotionally complex narrative that will keep its audience engaged from beginning to end. This is a great movie that deserves an audience, and I encourage you to become a part of it.
