I had the chance to see this film last week, it was so different then what I had expected.
First at all before seeing the trailer, I was expecting a romantic quiet film, then after the trailer I understood that it a horror movie.
That was ok , the begining of the film was exciting, it makes you posing a lot of questions.
Kind of why everything is quiet, why the family have to stay silent? then some other kind of questions rise in the mind kind of what are those monsters, how they get there, why they did existed in the first place?
All those questions, and the time is passing, the events in the film progress, and the most important thing, there is no words in th film, every second pass and I wait for the actors to speak but they did not.
The producer was clever enough to make he watcher understand what’s happening without words, the only spoken sentence was when the mother makes her husband promise her to protect the children.The film was speechless, but I can’t say quietly.The funny part was when the film’s end and I still waiting for an explanation, and for the character to speak.
I actually wasn’t able to believe that it was the end, just like that without answers to my questions, I was surprised by a way that I made a long historical laugh, I’m not the kind of person who accept being left without explanation, without knowing the concrete meaning of thing. So when the film’s end, I left with even more questions bigger than those of the beginning of the film.I was trying to get at least a conclusion, at least the purpose of the film, so I thought that maybe the writer of the film wants us to know that sometimes to survive you have to stay calm enough, no matter how big is your pain, your emotions or whatever it is you have to hide it and get over it.Maybe he wants to say, that actions matter more than words.You can express love, care and attention by so many different ways, the most important is to show it, but if that was really the idea, I think that I don’t share it totally, yes, it’s important to act, but to express and share positive feelings are important too, the proof that the daughter in the film did not understand and the love of her father to only when he told her. She was thinking that he does what he is doing only buy because it is his duty.One other thought nit relevant to the silence, is what is the point of having children if we can’t protect them? Most of people in the world, doing the same thing bringing more children to a miserable world where they can’t protect their children, I was wondering why? maybe this uncertainty is necessary for evolution, who can tell? it’s true that mother nature has weird ways.Anyways the film in general was good enough, and intriguing.It makes you think, it was a new kind for me, new experience, I’m not used to this kind of presentation.And I can advise people to see it.
