51th Directors’ Fortnight May 15-25, 2019

La Fin du silence

Fortnight 2011, Feature film, 1h20

Synopsis

A violent quarrel bursts in a remote house in the Vosges mountains.
On the first day, Jean, the younger son of the family, is thrown out of the house after a violent quarrel. He joins a group of hunters for a beat and learns how to kill. The following night, his mother’s car is torched. He is held responsible. Jean disappears into the forest…
Roland Edzard gained experience by directing four simple, poised and remarkable short films. The End of Silence, his first feature, is tense and strong and confirms his impressive maturity with a very taught and precise mise en scène. A film with stamina.
Gaëlle Vidalie, selection commitee
