Storyline

When we meet Eileen, we see her sabotaging her big sister's wedding. We find out that she blames her older sister, Claire for a car accident that has left her deaf and mute. As Eileen tells us the story from her perspective we see a series of flashbacks that tell us about a love affair that she had with her sister's groom James. They had kept the relationship a secret due to an age difference, from everyone except Claire. When James won't believe Eileen's story about Claire trying to murder her, she sets her plan into motion and swears revenge on the newlyweds. As we watch her try to ruin Claire's big day, the audience is left guessing if Eileen's story is the truth. Written by Author

Great short suspense film
24 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this film at the San Diego Film Festival (it'll probably only be shown at festivals since it's not feature-length). If you get a chance, see it. The story revolves around a girl who has lost her hearing (and ability to speak, thus the title) due to an accident. Since she tells the story, we have to go with her, and it's part of the suspense that we don't really know if she's telling us everything or not. It has some humor, but it's mostly a "dreamy" sort of justification by the mute girl for her actions. What's really interesting is the sound in the movie. Since she's deaf and mute, the director chose to have some moments of silence and some isolated sounds. Some of these sounds were very effective choices - they enhanced the mood and heightened the suspense. The script is lean, the acting is excellent and the visuals are inventive yet appropriate to the telling of the story. Check this one out if you get a chance! And hopefully we'll get a feature-length film from her in the future.
