Editors Note
Note Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne (THE CHILD) direct this drama about an Albanian woman torn between connections to three men and her own dreams. Lorna (Arta Dobroshi) is an immigrant living in Belgium. Though she has a boyfriend, her involvement with the Mafia leads her to marry Claudy (Jérémy Renier) so she can get citizenship. But her life is further complicated when she is told to marry a Russian criminal, putting Claudy's life in danger.
New York Times "It's the closest thing to a crowd pleaser that these rigorous, demanding and profoundly humane artists are likely to make." 07/31/2009
Los Angeles Times "LORNA'S SILENCE is a gritty, deceptively low-key, no-fuss, no-frills movie of consistent originality and surprise in which suspense arises straight up from the heroine's evolving character." 07/31/2009
Wall Street Journal "[A] somber beauty of a French-language drama....Every time predictability threatens, the plot takes an unexpected turn..." 07/31/2009
Entertainment Weekly "[A] closely observed, sociologically astute, and amazingly naturalistic drama about moral compromise as a by-product of economic need." -- Grade: A- 07/29/2009
A.V. Club "Breaking with the handheld subjectivity of previous films, the Dardennes keep the camera still and distant, giving the film an undercurrent of abstraction culminating in a final sequence that feels more like a fairy tale than social realism." -- Grade: B 07/30/2009
Chicago Sun-Times 3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Renier's performance is the best thing in the movie....The gift of Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne is to show their characters as trapped in personal human situations; they're not creatures of a plot." 08/13/2009 ,Included in Chicago Sun-Times's "The Best Foreign Films Of 2009" -- "[I]t's about personalities, as intensely observed as always with the Dardennes." 12/27/2009
