Silence Description

Legendary director Martin Scorsese’s Silence tells the story of two Christian missionaries (Adam Driver and Oscar® nominee Andrew Garfield) who travel to Japan in search of their missing mentor (Academy Award® nominee Liam Neeson) at a time when Christianity was outlawed. When they are captured and imprisoned, both men are plunged into an odyssey that will test their faith, challenge their sanity and, perhaps, risk their very lives.

Drama about a deaf girl who witnesses the audacious murder of a policewoman, and is reluctantly propelled further into a loud and frightening world.

Silence Movie Reviews

  • A Contemplative Masterpiece.

    Before writing this review I took a look at some of the other comments here on iTunes. You can tell a lot about the personal/spiritual baggage some are carrying in the negative comments. I found this film to be very unique and beautiful. I don't see this film as pro-Christian/Catholic or anti-Christian/Catholic, pro-Buddhism or anti-Buddhism, pro-West or anti-West, pro-Japanese or anti-Japanese. I wouldn't even describe this film as "religious" or "faith-based" in genre. In essence I find this an amazing film about the fears, misunderstandings and unfortunate tragedies that took place between two well-meaning cultures. Both the Catholic missionaries and the Japanese leadership of this time thought they were doing the right thing. But yet they both failed to truly understand one other. There are many levels of this film to contemplate if one is so inclined. This is a contemplative film and will be appreciated by those who are open to a unique thought provoking experience.
  • Silence..

    Fitting name! Thats the same sound my TV made after I turned this off. Very disappointing. I normally swear by Scorcese, but I just didnt care about any of the characters. None of them are a strong enough or charismatic enough of a lead to make this slow story at least compelling.
  • Terrible Ending

    The ending makes the entire plot of the move pointless as the main character lasts all the way through and then cracks at the end, completely undoing the entire point of the film. It essentially ends with the 'bad guys' winning. A huge waste of time.
  • a predictable so so

    Megan 0571
    story about the deluded insanity of religion, and the pathetic human species who either wage war against it, or die for it.

  • Boring. Couldn't watch more than 90 minutes

    I like most of Martin Scorsee's movies, but this one is a real dud. Too much time spent examining the brutal take-down of early christians in Japan and not enough time spent telling a story that ties the repression of a religion with why the main characters are even there.
  • Scilence

    Martin Scorsese has delivered another masterpiece with ‘Silence.’
  • Ugh

    Great cinematography. 3 hours of torture both in the film and out.
  • Anti Christian Justification for Genocide

    The romanticism of denying the Christian Faith is celebrated in this movie, much worse is a blatant justification for the slaughtering and genocide of Christians in Japan.
  • Worst Scorsese film ever

    Not worth reviewing. It's just awful and not even worth the 99 cent rental.
