Baran bo Odar's THE SILENCE has a brand new poster (below) and it looks really sweet! This is Odar's debut feature. The movie is an adaptation of Jan Costin Wagner's best-selling novel of the same name.
The plot sings like this:
"The Silence begins 23 years ago on a hot Summer day, when a young girl named Pia is brutally murdered in a field of wheat. Now, on the exact same date in the present, 13-year-old Sinikka is missing, her bicycle abandoned in the same spot. As Krischan, the retired investigator of the unresolved case, and his younger colleague David struggle to solve the mystery of these parallel crimes, Sinikka’s distraught parents are trapped in an agonizing period of waiting and uncertainty."
"Meanwhile, their daughter’s fate rips open old wounds in the heart of Pia’s mother, who is visited by an unexpected guest with an eerie connection to her daughter. The unrelenting Summer heat lies over the quaint family homes like a bell jar and behind closed doors, worlds begin to fall apart."
Ulrich Thomsen, Wotan Wilke Möhring, Sebastian Blomberg, Katrin Sass, and Burghart Klaussner all star in the flick directed by Baran bo Odar.
