Film entitled: Four Deaf Yorkshiremen

Posted in Deaf Cinema, film by Robs on August 7, 2008

I enjoyed watching this film because it is very funny. The film is about deaf men who challenge each other to tell their worst stories. I never thought of the ending, and I laughed out loud at the ending. I like the ending. The plot is excellent. This short film is 10 minutes long.

I bought the special edition DVD “Four Deaf Yorkshiremen” includes extra features, and I also got the two glossy photos of the “Four Deaf Yorkshiremen.”

You can buy the DVD, and see “Four Deaf Yorkshiremen” in full quality, just contact Charlie Swinbourne at for more information! The DVD sale is raising money for the second film “The Return of the Four Deaf Yorkshiremen.”

I’m looking forward to watch the second film.
