A fable of innocence: thirteen-year-old Aviva Victor wants to be a 'mom'. She does all she can to make this happen, and comes very close to succeeding, but in the end her plan is thwarted by her sensible parents. So she runs away, still determined to get pregnant one way or another, but instead finds herself lost in another world, a less sensible one, perhaps, but one pregnant itself with all sorts of strange possibility. She takes a road trip from the suburbs of New Jersey, through Ohio to the plains of Kansas and back. Like so many trips, this one is round-trip, and it's hard to say in the end if she can ever be quite the same again, or if she can ever be anything but the same again.

The special thing about Palindromes is that the actress of Aviva keeps changing throughout the film: there are ten very different actors portraying her in different phases of the story. The unconventional approach to her character may be explained by a speech delivered by an accused child molester (Matthew Faber) near the end of the film: we will always stay the same no matter how our appearance changes during our life. Of the many actresses portraying Aviva the most memorable is surely Sharon Wilkins, an obese black woman who may initially strike the audience as a grotesque caricature of what Aviva has become, but soon wins the affections to her side with her fearful and insecure but low-key performance. Debra Monk and Matthew Faber also deserve praise for capturing the essence of their respective characters.

As expected from a Solondz project, the film deals with heavy and depressing themes like murder, pedophilia and hypocrisy. Even so, I think Palindromes is less forlorn than, say, Storytelling (Solondz's previous movie from 2001). Although we know more than Aviva from early on, at least we don't have to witness her having her dreams thoroughly crushed, which softens the effect a bit. Palindromes may not be as wholesome an experience as Happiness (1998), but for those who enjoy Solondz's bleak, even disgusting style, it will deliver an enjoyable if pessimistic look into people's desire to have someone to love unconditionally.

Man, this is going too far! Whatever you feel galmuchet is guilty of this type of personal attack is totally unacceptable.

In my opinion galmuchet has made a huge contribution not only to this but to many other forums as well. Whether you agree with his methods and posts or not he deserves respect for the work he has done and for the colossal amount of material he has made available to the community. No one deserves to be on the end of such a tirade as yours Ioannis.
