  1. Catalina Bordeanu's rating of the film Silent Wedding

  2. Théophile Robert's rating of the film Silent Wedding

    The movie has this incredible idea in the middle, the silent wedding. I love when narratives are surprising, when they try to counter any intuitions you had. That's what the movie does. It's a shame it sometimes abused the heavy, useless wannabe rabelaisian jokes, that made the movie less good than it could be.

  3. Léo Lebrun's rating of the film Silent Wedding

    ils sont forts ces roumains !

  4. Schellenberg's rating of the film Silent Wedding

    A mix of genres and styles. Strongly influenced by Kusturica. Tells a touching tale but one has the feeling that substance and authenticity were sacrificed to tell the story.

  5. azoulay's rating of the film Silent Wedding

    Fellini ou Kusturica sont ici convoqués dans un chef d'oeuvre de farce poétique populaire multi émotionnelle. Le moment du cirque est inouï de finesse, le banquet silencieux inoubliable, des acteurs dévorants leur jeu, une mise en scène drôle et imaginative qui à chaque moment nous transperce et nous transporte ( ah l'homme oiseau qui vole) c'est super beau et c'est profond comme la vie. Chapeau bas.

  9. AVA's rating of the film Silent Wedding

    Ein Film,der sich vom Sonderling zum Original entwickelt.

  10. fane2808's rating of the film Silent Wedding

    Perfect film to show how tragic & comic Romanians are, at the same time. It was rather predictable as ending, but very in line with their rather fatalistic way of dealing with things. Not a masterpiece, but a rather touching way of making mea culpa for everything bad that comes from never taking life seriously.

  11. suede's rating of the film Silent Wedding

    Boring and idiotic slapstick, in an often absurdly artificial Disneyland version of rural 1953 Romania. At least the wedding banquet contains excellently enacted scenes. But this is like a long fart joke whose author ultimately wants to make you weep of sadness. The combination is dreadful. It's a bad run of films I'm presently slogging through on MUBI.

  12. Alexander Goldmann's rating of the film Silent Wedding

    Ich glaube es lohnt sich den Film mit Untertiteln im Orginal zu schauen. Hervorzuheben sind vor allem die sehr guten Bilder. Diese werden von sehr guter Musik eingerahmt. Kritikpunkt ist das der Film teilweise nicht weiß was er sein möchte. Traurige und Ernste Stellen werden immer wieder von Comedyeinlagen unterbrochen.Teilweise auch Slapstick. Trotzdem bleibt der Film mit seiner Geschichte im Gedächtnis.

  13. klofter's rating of the film Silent Wedding

    Malaele really does throw everything and the kitchen sink against the wall, doesn't he? Some of it sticks with resounding (no pun intended) effect, some of it falls flat, but I think it's undeniable that this is as rich and textured a film experience you'll ever get. There is so much creativity, so much emotion, so much deep affection for these characters here, it's simply marvelous.

  14. Stefan Drees's rating of the film Silent Wedding

    I think Mălăele's movie is too indecisive. The fluctuation between comedy, drama, ghost story, slapstick, pantomime and nostalgic glorification of village life doesn't work out in the end. In charging everything with symbolism he forgets to give his figures some flesh and blood and creates simple caricatures instead.

  15. Max Seqgar's rating of the film Silent Wedding

    What a beautiful movie!!! Through humor, a bitter story is told about the ghosts of the past. Wonderful!!!

  16. AdrianM.'s rating of the film Silent Wedding

    1,5 a blend of Fellini, Kusturica and the usual Romanian grief, but dumb and kitsch

  17. uiu's rating of the film Silent Wedding

    a very very beautiful movie about a not beautiful (real) thing gorgeous

  18. ADZERTY's rating of the film Silent Wedding

    Un film très dense, très riche, poétique, fantaisiste, carnavalesque, excessif, exubérant, comique, violent, tragique, nostalgique, sensible, généreux !

  20. CaÏn Kââ's rating of the film Silent Wedding

    un film pasolinien. Truculent. Tragique. Le peuple à l'écran y existe.

  21. Henrique Amud's rating of the film Silent Wedding

    A truly unique, if flawed movie. As much as i enjoyed most of the director's choice, some of them left me really baffled. But most importantly, it's a pretty good and enjoyable story.
