a stunning visual trip
31 August 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I saw this beautifully shot film recently.... to be honest I was expecting to watch a good thriller, pass a couple of hours and that's about it. What I discovered was an incredibly fascinating story where, wonder of wonders, I actually felt I was learning something valuable without being preached to...

But the biggest surprise was how moving, honest and sensitive the performances were .... and most of all - how visually stunning the film was.. I was taken on a journey through all the atmospheric 'landscapes', both literal and metaphorical.

Great stuff! A quiet but powerful film. The Listening is undoubtedly one of the best movie surprises of 2006.
