Storyline

Larry Pearce is a dour office worker in a phone answering company who is having problems getting over the recent death of his young son from a rare brain disorder. Larry's grief has somehow triggered his acute sense of hearing 20-fold which he can hear a whispered conversation from hundreds of feet away. But his ability soon affects his sanity as he learns he cannot control it and all efforts to block out sound are futile, which puts a strain on his long-suffering wife Brenda, who unlike him, cannot stand quiet. As as result, Larry's slow slide into insanity because of his gift/curse of sensitive hearing and inability to deal with the grief of the loss of his son, leads to more tragedy for all involved.

An interesting episode
29 October 2006 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Sound. Thats the key subject of this episode. A lot of different sound techniques are used throughout to enhance and show the aural assault the protagonist is subjected to on a daily basis.

He has ultra-sensitive hearing with such little things like knitting or kids skipping enhanced to a deafening level. Something is eating away at him and much like in The Machinist it starts to effect his everyday life.

Thankfully Anderson does not ape his previous classic (too soon to call it a classic?) and the story wanders a different path. Wandering is the only fault with the episode though, spending too much time showing different sounds driving Chris Bauer's character mad rather than progressing the story. Still a similar dark atmosphere is created throughout and carries through to the last shot of the movie.

Worth watching.
