Entering deep into that Neorrealist territory the marked the 1950s New York scene and seems to return now and again in the alleys of the big city with raw stories of encouraging disenchantment (like Sean Baker’s Take Out and Prince of Broadway), Nathan Silver narrates the “love story” between a girl and a boy, two uncertain, bordering characters immerse within a group of social misfits under the care of Maury, a kind old man who could use some of his own medicine. But both through its characters and its underlying theme (a free adaptation of Dostoievski’s The Idiot, according to its director) Soft in the Head builds a story in which the reality and fiction blur each other guided by a dark and bitter sensation which is rarely seen in contemporary Neorrealism (of which Luis Ortega’s Dromómanos might be the closest example), and aware that the current times leave no room for much more than this.
