  • Beautifully shot and the main actress was incredible... This film should get more recognition unfortunately it came out the same time as Silent Child so has been a little over bit shadowed. Well done Ted.

  • Beautiful film... So moving... Non-stop Sarah fighted her partner's father through the jounery. Jemma and Hermi are brilliant actresses and new faces. Hope to see them again on the screens. A huge well done to Ted made it since The End. All the best and successfully for his new feature film. Way to go!

  • I've watched "To Know Him" just today. Wow! It has dramatically changed compared to the rest of the previous Deaf films. No disrespect to other Deaf filmmakers. Sometimes I wish your film could have been released 30 years ago. Why? It's a quality film (what I mean is I could watch it again and again). Thank you, BSL Zone, for giving him the chance to make a unique storyline. Also, well done to the actors. I think they deserve to win an Oscar.

  • I have just watched To Know Him. As I was on holiday when it was screened I was so happy when friend told me you gave access on your site. Thank you. Jemma was amazing and is an amazing individual. She is a dedicated hard working young lady that clearly comes to the fore in this short but very moving film.

  • Smooth filming and story...but a sort of once viewing is enough.
    Well done Ted

  • Thanks for a sensitive film, very different to watch. I am a hearing person who learnt to sign to suoport deaf access our church in Preston, Lancs. The pace of the film was just right, slow enough to let me think about things. I would have liked to be able to see more of the actual signing, eg at the end, with the interpreter - rather than relying on sound and subtitles. Will watch again and share with friends who are deaf.

  • Excellent film. Outstanding performances from the whole cast. Almost unbearably moving. Deserves to be seen on mainstream tv.
    Thank you.
