CGiii Comment

This is cinema - it is darkly beautiful...but, by no stretch of the imagination is it enjoyable.

Both actresses excel with the intensity - they must have been physically drained by the end.

The metaphors are everywhere.

A work of genius, perhaps...but, not an entertaining one.

The(ir) Blurb...

"The Silence" is about the emotional distance between two sisters. The younger one is still attractive enough to pick up a lover in a strange city. The older one -- even though she is very ill -- would like to make a human connection also but cannot leave the hotel room. Traveling with the sisters is a small boy who escapes into the hotel, meets a troupe of dwarfs. Which sister is this little boy's mother?
