Fantastic ‘The Silence’ Trailer Creeps In

Music Box films has release the first official trailer for their upcoming murder mystery The Silence from Swiss director Baran bo Odar. The trailer is pretty phenomenal as it uses its very name to its advantage by showing us a very eerie and quietly creepy trailer for the film. This is — in my opinion — the perfect trailer because it uses it’s amazing shots and grim images to pull you in with a dark score to settle it all into your bones.

The Silence begins 23 years ago on a hot summer day, when a young girl named Pia is brutally murdered in a field of wheat. Now, on the exact same date in the present, 13-year-old Sinikka is missing, her bicycle abandoned in the same spot. As Krischan, the retired investigator of the unresolved case, and his younger colleague David struggle to solve the mystery of these parallel crimes, Sinikka’s distraught parents are trapped in an agonizing period of waiting and uncertainty. Meanwhile, their daughter’s fate rips open old wounds in the heart of Pia’s mother, who is visited by an unexpected guest with an eerie connection to her daughter. The unrelenting summer heat lies over the quaint family homes like a bell jar, and behind closed doors worlds begin to fall apart.

This will mark Odar’s debut feature film as he adapts Jan Costin Wagner’s bestelling novel with his own unmistakable signature. Ulrich Thomsen, Wotan Wilke Möhring, Sebastian Blomberg, Katrin Sass, and Burghart Klaussner all star. You can look for this one on March 8, 2013 as it is set for a limited release.

Watch the trailer below.

    1. They know what they are doing over there! Some of the shots in the trailer are just jaw dropping. And what is crazy is that it’s Odar’s first feature film. Can’t wait to check this one out.

  1. I agree with Terry that this seems similar to Girl With The Dragon Tattoo which is not a bad thing. Plus the beginning with the slow rolling car approaching the girl reminds me of I Saw the Devil. The Swiss appear to have put together a taut mystery here.
