The Finger is a warmly humorous film about a murdered man's finger and the way the digit becomes the oracle by which the townspeople make all of their important decisions.
4 January 2013 | by franceshugg777See all my reviews

This amusing little film from South America is full of whimsy and charm. The director could have presented the local inhabitants as being backward, superstitious or overly naive. Instead the story unfolds very naturally as a result of the knowledge, respect and affection the town's people have for each other. The character of the murdered man was admired before his death, and even after the murder is solved, the "miracle" of the way the murdered man's finger influences the fate of his murderer is seen as evidence of the superior character of the victim. It is a sweet, quirky film that I found to be highly enjoyable and can highly recommend.
