  • 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.

  • By no means perfect, Burger's Silent Sonata is an oddly mesmerising piece of performance art.

  • 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.

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

  • 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.

  • A Fellini-esque silent fable with tackles the horrors of war with a refreshing sense of the absurd.
