  • 2 stars Too slow. Too much voice over.
  • 5 stars Very cerebral... makes you really ponder afterwards!
  • 5 stars Scorsese continues to make better films than people half his age, great film. Hope this'll win him his second Oscar.
  • 4 stars A very powerful and somber movie. Very thought provoking and shines a light about a time that I never heard of before. The studios and Scorsese were very brave to back and make this movie as its not going to be a blockbuster. It's long and dark so be prepared for it.
  • 3 stars Acting good and cinematography great although movie is a big long and some aspects dragged out a bit.
  • "Silence" is an emotional movie that shows the suffering of Jesuit priests in the 17th century. We see the cruelty of Japanese people toward christianity. Father Rodrigues and Father Ferreira survived torture to give up their faith.
  • I printed the passes and went to the movie theatre but was unfortunately turned down as it was overbooked..would have liked to view movie but no luck!!Is it possible to get free passes to see this movie or other movie in the near future for my effort...thank you in advance for your consideration!
  • 3 stars Basé sur un livre à succès de 1966, dans un XVIIe siècle ou les persécutions religieuses sont monnaie courante au Japon, alors que les instances supérieures martyrisent la population chrétienne, rendu à l’écran par Scorsese donnent lieu à des scènes horrifiantes, des images dures. La foi et le doute sont mis à rude épreuve et les nombreuses scènes de torture dictent aux âmes sensibles de s’abstenir, d’autant plus que même les missionnaires les plus convaincus ne peuvent résister à renier leur foi du moins de l’extérieur. Très bon jeu du jeune missionnaire Rodrigues et de l’inquisiteur japonais. Les rochers y sont abrupts, les scènes intenses; il faut presque retenir son souffle. Contraste flagrant avec les films mièvres du Temps des Fêtes; plutôt à voir au Temps de Pâques.
  • 4 stars Silence is a very powerful movie! Some of the scenes were breath-taking (both positively and negatively). The violence was very hard to see. I would give this movie a XXX rating because of the violence. Unfortunately, human history is not made up of fairy tales. I knew nothing about Christianity in Japan, so this was a real eye opener. Thank you Mr. Scorcese for making this film!
