Drama without words

Some of you may have heard me bang on about Andrew Sachs (yes, Manuel from Fawlty Towers)'s 1979 radio drama without words, "Revenge". An experiment never again repeated. Or so I thought.

This is a short French piece called "Enlevé". You can find it, and much, much more on http://www.arteradio.com. I think it works...

Is this the audio equivalent of silent films?
Is that too pretentious for words?
Do I care?

I've just found out that the underwater scene in "Revenge" was recorded by strapping a binaural microphone to Andrew Sachs and wrapping it in condoms. So now we know.
