      Last week we went and saw the Orphanage, which is currently nominated for foreign film awards. It was in Spanish, however after sitting there awhile you didn’t even need the subtitles to follow the story line.

      The film started showing an old orphanage in Spain, there were a group of children playing, many of them were handicapped in one way or another, the opening scene

      Lara is being adopted. Years later Lara and her doctor husband buy the orphanage and they intend on taking in children that no one else wants. They have already adopted a young boy Simon, who is HIV positive. The relationship between the young boy and his mother becomes strange as Simon’s imaginary friends become an issue.

      The story takes on a supernatural feeling ...

      • when Simon insists that his friends are real, he becomes distraught at his mother, and she slaps him at a party, then he disappears and no one in the town can locate him. Lara is haunted by his memory and she finally seeks out a physic who tells her there are spirits of other children remaining in the house. Now remember this is all
        in Spanish and you could still feel the suspense building up. I would say that is a plus for this movie. I won’t tell you the ending, you have to see it and disregard that it is in a foreign language you can still enjoy the movie.
