A young girl vanishes from a wheat field leaving a bicycle behind as her only remaining trace. Twenty years later, another girl goes missing again leaving only a two-wheeler in the same exact field. Now the current investigation headed by a grieving detective is intercut with the ongoings following the initial crime. The Silence is a German suspense film crafted by Baran bo Odar from Jan Costin Wagner's novel that features an intriguing, slow burn plot leading up to an unsatisfactory revelation. The film is also populated with cliched characters and marked by some seriously irritating acting.
