Faucet Dripping

I was watching a French film today and noticed the absence of music. Moods were indicated by sounds of a door closing or a key rattling or a faucet dripping. There was none of that overpowering Hollywood or Bollywood music that tells the audience what to feel.

In the case of the French film, it was the absence of music that gave the movie its emotional power.
