New Movie about a Deaf School

A movie about a state-run Ukrainian school for the deaf opens in the UK today. The Tribe is a Ukrainian film with no subtitles--the story is told in sign. The BBC has a review here which tells about the film and why it is controversial in the Deaf community. Since signing is a language like any other, why not have subtitles? The Guardian, which calls The Tribe a "compelling and explicit film," offers a review here. The trailer is below.
