Another Silence

A film by Santiago Amigorena

Movie review

After suffering a personal tragedy, a rogue Toronto cop (Marie-Josée Croze) goes all the way to Argentina to track down the young thug (Ignacio Rogers) who shattered her existence. A self-serious B-movie, Another Silence is a slow, moody, quiet affair punctuated by brief bursts of violence. It’s elevated somewhat by the intense, haunted performance by Croze, the majestic landscapes of Argentina’s Jujuy province, the great score by Yves Desrosiers and the use of Lhasa de Sela’s What Kind of Heart as an emotional linchpin. But in the end, this sophomore effort from Santiago Amigorena (A Few Days in September) remains a rather generic revenge story marred by poor writing and an uneven supporting cast.
