Boven is het stil

Nanouk Leopold Netherlands, 2013

SiIencio's rating of the film It's All So Quiet

From the deceptive beginning to the unexceptional end the film is a strenuous journey depicted with austere economy. Leopold heavily relies on the gravitas of the late Jeroem Willems and the depiction of an oppresive but lucid mood crafted with frugal resources to concoct an unusual story. However despite early suggestions of a philosophical subject matter, the film cheekily hides a less than impressive leitmotif.
