'Das letzte Schweigen' as this 2010 crime/drama/thriller film is called in German, did not do particularly well in the box office, however received 1 win and 4 nominations for it's clever plot. Based on a novel by Jan Costin Wagner and adapted into screenplay and directed by Swiss Baran bo Odar, this film progressed at an incredibly slow pace. The usual to be expected;a slow progression in foreign films, Danish Ulrich Thomsen and the cast of German actors, Sebastian Blomberg, Wotan Wilke Mohring, Burghart Kaubner and Katrin Sab, all demonstrated wonderful acting abilities in this mysterious and thought-provoking story.
Once the audience can withstand the creeping yet deliberate turn of events, they realize that every moment of truth is significant to expressing the inner feelings of our main characters and the serious turmoil they are going through. Disturbing and a bit strange but a riveting story!
