The Silence Reviews
Decent plot: on a date in the 80s, two men abduct and murder a little girl. The case was never solved. Fast-forward 23 years, and a very similar crime has happened in the same location.
It's German, so it's not bound by all the nonsense in American films. It's very slow and the first murder scene, while not necessarily graphic, is certainly unpleasant. But the pace never quickens and sometimes they throw in some needless cinematography. All of that, maybe intentionally, adds to the slower pace.
Then there are the characters. My favorite is the lead investigator of sorts. He's disheveled, mostly because he's recently lost his wife to cancer. But you can tell he's a smart and caring man and I really liked that character. The men responsible for the murder(s)...interesting. One is kind of a pathetic character. One is pretty good at being creepy.
Can't say too much without being a spoiler, but it turns into an interesting movie. The ending is left fairly wide open, which kind of works for this movie. Biggest complaint is pace and maybe how inept some of the cops are, but overall, a nice flick.
