Baran Bo Odar’s 2010 moody German thriller, The Silence, is getting very limited U.S. release in March. In light of this, an atmospheric, Memories Of Murder-esque trailer has dropped on the internets. This thing looks masterfully shot. Check it out.
23 years ago on a hot summer day, a girl is brutally murdered in a field of wheat. In the present day, on the exact same date, 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. A recently widowed detective David and his colleague Janna struggle to solve the mystery of these parallel crimes with the help of 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 the mother of the original girl.
