Silence is golden doon the coast.

8/10
Author: stumcguiness from United Kingdom, Scotland
13 May 2005

Like many little art-house short films that deal with issue based subject matters, Miracle of Silence offers an insightful glance into the life of a deaf character, Jack and his need to be accepted in his day to day life. Perhaps less of a need to be accepted but a desire to be recognised for who he is, and where he fits in, in the world. But what this stunningly shot, brilliantly directed, understated little tales offers us is an intelligent journey that doesn't try to be anything more than what it is. A lot is left up to the imagination, with several subliminal little clues that paint a bigger picture illustrating a highly observant Jack's quest for a soul mate. His loneliness is evident in his relationship with his sister, Julia whom he lives with in by the beach, which in itself suggests the limitations of a happy existence. Not surprisingly artist Jack's fulfilment comes in the form of a naturally beautiful girl whom he draws in lead, it's like he has planned the whole thing and is living a fantasy, and one can clearly see why he would go to so much trouble. Whatever it leaves you with, if your half human, you'll want to shed a tear.
