    You might not believe it's so real, but I speak from experience as a hearing child of a deaf parent, I've experienced all those scenes of translation, fights with my dad, etc. Love it.

    Worthy of its Oscar nomination for Best Foreign Film that year.

    The stakes are so low that it's hard to get involved, even if the movie itself is perfectly competent otherwise.

    Stunningly photographed with beautiful musical performances, 'Beyond Silence' lacks a gripping script and the top-notch acting that it needs to make it a real winner. A little disappointing but still watchable.

    Incredibly moving film about a hearing child born to deaf parents. Well made. Loved it, absolutely loved it.

    Very naturalistic. Lots of fragments that seemed to go nowhere and little resolution at the end.

    Such a cute movie. I normally don't think German movies are that great but this movie was really good.
