Who needs words when the story speaks volumes? In a world which pulses to the steady and incessant noise of dialogue, we often wish for silence. Perhaps we've even forgotten how powerful silence can be. Now, from one of the industry's most respected, Emmy and Bafta award-winning producers comes a remarkable collection of 11 contemporary, magical and heart-warming short films. The stories - each without dialogue - are brought vividly to life by a stellar cast.

12 films each of 10 minutes with no words. In most of these short film is at least one great actor and often a great writer, notably Neil Gaiman and yet it just felt too arty for me, like watching a drama school lesson. Most of the films had a Christmas theme, most had a very simple plot, in a few, tediously a blossoming romance. Surely you can squeeze a little more plot into 10 minutes. There was something interesting about all of them, but not enough to like or intrigue.1 film for example was a dog-cam, life as a dog in a shopping mall. One of the best for me featured Ross Kemp (possibly not the greatest actor) but also featured a gang of street gymnasts doing incredible tumbles and jumps. The Spall film includes some amazing models which need a second look to check that they are not real. Generally however dull.
