Imagine.Largely in English, Imaginemay cater to art-house couples because of its love story, but its lack of stars could prove problematic for international audiences. Ironically, the film’s commendable decision not to reduce its characters’ blindness to toothless disease-of-the-week drama might also hurt its commercial prospects. (A more generically upbeat storyline probably would have guaranteed rosier theatrical returns.)
Imagine introduces us to Ian (Hogg), a new teacher at a Lisbon institute for the blind who is himself blind. Ian’s core philosophy is that the visually impaired don’t need to feel helpless - instead, by incorporating echolocation (a technique that allows the blind to sense objects around them by paying close attention to acoustic echoes), those without sight should be able to feel comfortable moving through their environment. This philosophy isn’t embraced by everyone at the institute, but it does draw the interest of Eva (Lara), a beautiful patient who usually avoids contact with others.
