i just saw this marvelous film with a crowd of almost non English speaking people who all were film buffs. we all had fun seeing how brilliant this picture moves from banal to brilliant and gripping tale as well while nothing is clear until the last 20 minutes of the film. the story telling is masterly.actors are all doing a good job even though one knows they did not h have 100 films into their credits.the film is conceptually at the arts level as well where the bunch of people are supposedly coming together to spend some time with agreeing on one condition that no one says a word.thus is wordlessness the name of the film. the blind man searches for his eternal love and can only trust his senses of smell.he smells one girl amongst the crowd who is also affectionate towards him but uncertain of her true determination to give herself to him or rather to the handsome mafia boss whose wife is having affairs with almost ever available man in the party.thus the thrill and suspense of the film grows as the boss has had enough of his waif,e mistreating him in front tog everyone and orders nasty things to happen to many............ this film as of many other films from shokof in my opinion needs to be seen with a fresh open minded sight and agree that he is always ironic and joking throughout his films where he expresses himself freely. the usage of the grand music of chet baker only adds to seconds where you only want to revolt against the simplicity of the pictures, settings and or story telling. a masterpiece in my opinion just alike his seven servants and perhaps strange stranger that all could very well be misunderstood and or even ignored as it was the case of seven servants.
