Silent Land Cicha ziemia

  Aga Woszczyńska

  Poland, Italy     113 minutes


In this tense, resonant interrogation of a relationship on the brink, a wealthy Polish couple arrives at a palatial Italian seaside vacation home, sanguine about the days ahead. The inconvenience of an unfilled swimming pool is only the first sign that a cloud of ennui and dissatisfaction has followed them there. And then the two witness a terrible accident from their balcony. How should they respond? An investigation by the local authorities is followed by the revelation of CCTV footage from the day of the incident. What responsibility do they bear? Expertly observed and carefully crafted with quiet echoes of festival-favorite Force Majeure, Silent Land imbues subtle details with hidden meanings to create an intricate web of psychological suspense and crumbling, ever-shifting morals.

 English, French, Italian, Polish with subtitles
