Silent Cry

The Silent Cry is a fictionalised narrative film,

based on documentary facts and extracts of one English girl's memories and thoughts, all surrounded, and directed towards her particular dilemma. This dilemma can be summarized as her basic inability to have relationships, especially sustained relationships, and particularly with men. This is the total of her statement and the film. The construction and flow of the film follows the way she thinks - it is her point of view that is followed in the film. So all things are the way she remembers and dwells on them, and which are important to her. - S.D.

With Ernest Brightmore, Bobby Gill, Harry Waistnage, Mary Rose.
