Silence (PG)


Eoghan is a sound recordist who is returning to Ireland for the first time in 15 years. His reason for returning is a job offer: to find and record places free from man-made sound. His quest takes him away from towns and villages into remote terrain.

The critical consensus

Pacific Rim it ain't, but this docu-like curio offers tranquility in spades. An aural bath of a film that will soothe troubled minds.

***(*)(*)Patrick Peters, Empire Online.

The storytelling is mournful and enigmatic but in its quiet, inscrutable way, this is a beautiful piece of film-making.

****(*)Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent, 08/08/2013

Irish writer-director Pat Collins's ideas-driven drama takes us on a very quiet journey into sound.

***(*)(*)Mike McCahill, The Guardian, 08/08/2013

There are interesting images, some of them from the archives, but...the film got nowhere that stuck in my memory.

Philip French, The Observer, 11/08/2013
