Beyond Silence


(out of 5)

Original title:  Jenseits Der Stille

Touching drama about a young girl born to deaf parents, who causes an emotional rift between herself and her father when she finds her calling in life is to be a musician. Having shared everything with him her whole life (including being her parents’ translator from a young age in the most serious of circumstances), her father’s insecurity rages like a storm when his daughter goes off in a direction that he cannot follow. Sensitively directed and beautifully acted.
