Critic Reviews for Silent Sonata (Circus Fantasticus)

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (2) | Fresh (6) | Rotten (2)

  • This modern take on the silent genre has none of the polish of, say, The Artist, but director Janez Burger's attempt has some powerful moments.

  • There is some beautiful imagery along the way but the conceit seems forced.

    May 9, 2014 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • By no means perfect, Burger's Silent Sonata is an oddly mesmerising piece of performance art.

    March 21, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Janez Burger has chosen to tell a dark and alienating story in a dark and alienating way. The combination of style and substance makes the viewer recoil.

    August 10, 2018 | Full Review…
  • Slovenian filmmaker Janez Burger's dialogue-free poetic fable doesn't dig deep (circus as metaphor for life, thanks Fellini) but there's a gentle surreal charm that's hard to resist.

    May 5, 2014 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • A Fellini-esque silent fable with tackles the horrors of war with a refreshing sense of the absurd.
