Expert Review Lorna's Silence - DVD Review
By: Chris Cabin filmcritic.com DVD Reviews
Published on: 12/25/2009 3:42 PM
A decade ago, in the Dardenne brothers' terrific Rosetta, a young woman wondered if her life was worth anything if she wasn't working. In the brothers' new film, Lorna's Silence, the slightly older Lorna (Arta Dobroshi) wonders if the life of her junkie husband-for-hire Claudy (Dardenne fixture Jrmie Renier) is all that important. An epic nuisance when not just a bad roommate, Claude married Lorna, an Albanian, so she could acquire Belgian citizenship. In return, she agrees to marry a Russian in an identical scheme. Her contact Fabio (Fabrizio Rongione) plans to bypass a messy divorce by simply killing Claudy with an overdose, something Lorna views ambivalently at first....read the full review

Professional Reviews

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

Chicago Sun-Times
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
