The last film in the Silence of God trilogy, The Silence examines the lack of communication in the modern world through the conflict between two sisters. During a trip through Europe, Ester, her sister Anna and her young nephew are forced to make an unplanned stop in a grimy and charmless city where they don’t speak the local language when Ester’s illness acts up. As time passes huddled in the hotel, the distance and tension between the sisters grows larger. The film received a wide ranging condemnation from the Swedish parliament to the Church citing indecency when it was theatrically released and ended up with a sensational box-office as a result.
This film was a Meetings on the Bridge participant.
