Movie Info

Prolific Cork-based documentarian Pat Collins possesses a restless curiosity, coupled with a poetic eye for the small moments - something that informs this feature debut, of sorts. We say 'of sorts' because Silence boldly defies categorisation at every turn. The film has been described as both meditation and odyssey, tracing the psycho-geographical journey undertaken by an enigmatic soundman (writer and co-scenarist Eoghan Mac Giolla Bhríde) from his adopted city of Berlin to his native Donegal. His undertaking is to aurally document landscapes free from man-made noise - a journey that ultimately leads our protagonist inwards, as he finds himself drawn to his childhood home.more

An uneasy mixture of fact and fiction ...

Observer [UK]

It's a film in which the mere arrival of birdsong on the soundtrack is as a narrative event but there are rewards for the patient; even those easily bored should leave the cinema feeling soothed.

This is London

Anyone caught trying to smuggle in popcorn should obviously be taken outside and shot - using a noise suppressor, preferably.

Think of Brian De Palma's Blow Out, then imagine it re-filmed by a team of Trappist monks.

The best cinematic portrayal of a man recording silence since that scene in 24 Hour Party People.
