English Subtitled Trailer For Baran Bo Odar's Serial Killer Thriller THE SILENCE
We first came across word of Baran Bo Odar's The Silence (Das Letzte Schweigen) back in February. Immediately drawn in by the atmosphere of the German language trailer this seemed to be the arrival of a significant new talent, a gut feeling borne out when I had the chance to see the completed film a few months later. And now with the picture being presented at the Locarno Film Festival we have the chance to present an English subtitled version of the trailer so that you can get a better sense of what's happening.
On a hot summer day, a bicycle is found in a wheat field - the exact scene of a crime committed 23 years ago. This time 13 year-old Sinikka is missing. While the investigator of the unresolved case and a young colleague start their inquest, for Sinikka's parents an agonizing period of waiting and uncertainty begins. The summer heat lies over the modest family homes like a bell jar and, behind the doors, once intact worlds begin to fall apart.
