  • Wow, I'll never forget this - to think what it was like in the deaf world back then! Great to see Sean nominated for best deaf actor at the Festival Clin d'Oeil in France; he did really well.

  • A thought provoking, profound and beautiful film, acted by actors with such great feeling and empathy. A window into the world of the deaf which we are privileged to embrace.

  • Thank you for opening the mind of people by showing how the society treats the deaf community. Thumbs up to the director, crew but more especially the actors. A brilliant sad film that should be used as a training material for young and old. The deaf people are still too discriminated in this society.

  • Excellent piece of drama! So nice to see Julian Peedle Calloo stepping up...met him 8 years ago on the train to Nottingham and knew he'd go places! Keep up the fine work you do...and I'm hungry for more good Drama like this!

    One curious question: was this based on a true story?

    Thanks!

  • brilliant little play direct to the point and fully embracing how deaf people must have felt not only about being able to 'join' the war effort but the emotions and feelings about how it must have felt.

    i really enjoyed it and i would love you to produce this as a DVD for schools and youth groups as a teaching aid I and a youth worker

  • It's a good film but slowly.

    Great visual screen.

    I can imagine how it was great scenes and settings - must lots of working very hard.

    Praise to the director, crew and actors.

    Interested story about WW1 deaf people had part their roles this happened. But a greatest respect for them to served this country.
