THE SILENCE Hits Screens Friday, Win A Prize Pack Now!

Todd Brown, Founder and Editor
Music Box Films release Baran Bo Odar's gripping thriller The Silence this coming Friday and they're not being silent about it at all. Nope, they're offering up prize packs to you, the Twitch loyal, including passes to see the film on the big screen and a DVD package that includes the Wallander TV series and all three original Dragon Tattoo films for the grand prize winner along with copies of the novel the film is based upon for three runners up.

The Silence begins on a hot summer day, when a girl named Pia is brutally murdered in a field of wheat by Peer (Ulrich Thomsen), as his helpless friend Timo (Wotan Wilke Moehring) watches. Exactly 23 years later, another 13-year-old, Sinikka, is missing, her bicycle abandoned in the same spot, leading police to suspect the same killer may be at work again.  Recently widowed detective David and his colleague Janna struggle to solve the mystery of these parallel crimes with the help of Krischan, the retired investigator of the unresolved case.  While Sinikka's distraught parents are trapped in an agonizing period of waiting and uncertainty, their daughter's fate rips open unhealed wounds in the heart of Pia's mother and sends Timo in search of Peer and their own old desires.
 
In his strikingly commanding debut feature, Swiss-born Baran bo Odar adapts Jan Costin Wagner's novel with his own unmistakable signature. Gripping performances by top European actors - headed by Ulrich Thomsen (In a Better World, The Celebration), Sebastian Blomberg (The Baader Meinhof Complex), Katrin Sass (Good Bye, Lenin!) and Burghart Klaussner (The White Ribbon) - enrich this intense drama far beyond the crime genre.

Want your chance to win? Simple enough, just email me here and name another memorable Ulrich Thomsen bad guy role. Winners will be drawn at random. And check out the trailer below!

    Wow, what a great trailer. A little bit -gasm at the end there, but on the whole a remarkable improvement over the norm. Kudos to whomever.
