Film: Notte Sento with English subtitles

Notte Sento is an Italian short film, shot in Milan which has been made with 4500+ still photographs (using a Canon EOS 30D camera):

Personally, I think its quite beautiful, and claws out the romantic at heart in me. Drawing me to basic human emotion, and actually makes me yearn to take a rail trip around Europe. The piecing together of photographic stills, almost delivers the art of cartoon making into another form. My wish? There was more art in Deaf film making. (Not the mass production crap that sometimes gets churned out on tv, making us medical or welfare cases).


A deaf girl misses her train to Milan and is set to wait overnight in Rome until dawn. However, a chance encounter with a guy changes her plans and the night lights of the capital turn into the background to a tender love story. An extraordinary chemistry made of knowing glances and small gestures fills the few instants that separate them both from the sunrise.
