Synopsis

This is a story that explores mourning, throughout a film with a delicate and paused rhythm, comparable to a suffering march. THE SILENCES manages to say a lot right from the first shot when the photograph of a face on a wall with a black ribbon is shown. The next shots of an old man and a boy are filmed as closely as possible to their bodies (feet, back of the head, backs, faces, hands); these are sensory, almost organic images that announce the aesthetics of the film.
