we went to see ‘the artist’ with good friends on this sunday afternoon at a theatre housed in a building dating back to 1852. it was the perfect setting to watch this new classic. i had not anticipated how relaxing it would be to simply sit and be entertained by a black and white silent film without all of the over the top graphics, animation, car chases and blaring music associated with so many films today. for 100 minutes not a word was spoken; on screen or in the theatre audience. the silence was broken only by the delightful score, the soft crunching of popcorn and an occasional giggle. afterwards we enjoyed a leisurely early dinner at a favorite restaurant. as the waitress poured the wine a small drop splashed up from the glass landing on the anemone decorating our table leaving the imprint of a perfect heart on one of its petals. appropriately, we all just sat in silence and enjoyed the show.
