Yet another masterpiece by Kenneth Branagh
7 August 2003 | by (Little Rhody, America) – See all my reviews

Kenneth Branagh's short film "Listening" is a 23-minute treat for the senses. Sound and imagery unite to tell the story of a man and woman who find one another while searching for their own inner peace at a spiritual retreat. There is one house rule: no one is to speak while at this retreat. This explains why there is limited dialogue throughout the film. However, the story evolves without speech, which emphasizes the sounds of nature, the emotive musical score and the sweet sound of silence. These elements, combined with great acting, masterful cinematography, and a touch of Branagh's genius yield a unique story with a poignant ending.
