The short, which includes no dialogue, features music by Sigur Ros

Why? Why are these artsy films covered with gloomy music and no audible dialogue- a complete turn off to me.


This was awesome. Wow.
14:12 I couldn't contain my emotions.
Incredible acting, music, cinematography and the silence was golden!


I never thought I would like this but I was absolutely mesmerized by the performances and the music. Very well acted and directed. I felt I knew exactly what was being conveyed without ever hearing the actors speak a word. Great work and hope to see more from all involved.


Very Nice, What Greats!
