The Silence

The Silence

Directed by Baran bo Odar

In Baran bo Odar’s mesmerizing German thriller, a young girl’s brutal murder reopens the case of another girl’s killing 23 years ago. Soon the people involved with that previous rape and murder – the investigator, the victim’s mother and an accomplice to the original crime – watch their worlds crumble as they are drawn deeper into a web of guilt, despair and uncertainty. Who is responsible for the two murders? The killer? Or the people who remained silent? Luminously shot and brilliantly directed, THE SILENCE announces Baran bo Odar as a major international genre talent.

A young girl’s brutal murder reopens the mystery of another girl’s killing 23 years earlier.

Cast: Ulrich Thomsen, Claudia Michelsen, Wotan Wilke Möhring

A very tedious movie. It was alright, but slow and i didn't care for the way it ended.

Really well done and fresh take on the typical detective investigating a serial crime.

Bleak and devastating. Acting is outstanding. If you’re in the mood for something heavy and well done, 5/5.
