Another good film - The Silence of Lorna review by CP Customer

If you liked the Dardenne brothers other films such as Rosetta and L'enfant, no doubt you will like this.

Demanding but compelling European cinema.

European Cinema At It's Best - The Silence of Lorna review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert

This really is an excellent film which follows Lorna’s attempts to establish herself as a Belgium citizen whilst raising revenue for her own business project. The world of sham marriages and citizenship proves to be a profitable one but fraught with danger. Her own relationship with the reforming addict Claudy becomes complicated as she seeks to help him resist the temptation of drugs. After benefiting herself through such an arrangement she is immediately whisked into a new deal with a Russian, yet she finds it tough to move on. You really feel for Lorna who seems like a genuine, kind and caring woman with good intensions that soon manifest themselves as real reservations about what she is doing. Has her body become no different to that of a prostitute? Available to hire for fake marriages and convenient divorces soon after citizenship is granted?

A failed A level film project - The Silence of Lorna review by CP Customer

Impossible to find any redeeming qualities in this poorly shot, appalling acted, predictably scripted, and hilariously badly edited, French film. It's only use is as a lesson in how not to do it.
