  1. There is no dialogue, as this is a silent film about the end of silent films. The score/soundtrack is AMAZING! I recommend!!!

      1. gouge your eyes out? sounds like you’re more the three stooges audience. that’s cool, but wait to do the gouging until the nominations are announced.

  2. I’ve noticed a bit of irony with the release of this film:

    Previously, people have often complained about having to read subtitles on foreign language films. Now, they are offered a foreign film WITHOUT subtitles, and they’re complaining about a movie having no dialogue at all! Oh, but they still have to read a few title cards. Still, title cards, unlike subtitles, don’t mean that they miss any onscreen content while their eyes read the text.
