I'm the type of person who always has things around; objects, papers, "inspiration", music playing, etc. However, I secretly wish to be one of those really tidy people who throw (or give) things away and have a live/work space filled with no distractions, only necessary tools and objects. 
So, to those that know me, it might come as a surprise that this is my favorite film.

I will never get sick of watching it. I love its simplicity, cleanliness, order. I love that it has no soundtrack, no dialogue, and no captions explaining what is happening (which is funny given the name of this blog). It was beautifully shot, using only the available light (sunlight, candles...).
Some people complain about the length of it (over 2 hours long), but I wish it was longer!
