Le silence de Lorna

Daniel S.'s rating of the film Lornas Schweigen

Just imagine the thriller ot the film noir that could have been made with such a screenplay! But the Dardennes brothers wrote it with the idea to film a realist drama. When Lorna gives a bowl of water to her husband as if he was a dog, would the scene have been more poignant in a film noir? Anyway, I liked a lot my first intrusion into the Dardennes' artistic world. Highly recommended.
