Breaking with the handheld subjectivity of previous films, the Dardennes keep the camera still and distant, giving the film an undercurrent of abstraction culminating in a final sequence that feels more like a fairy tale than social realism. -- Grade: B+

[A] closely observed, sociologically astute, and amazingly naturalistic drama about moral compromise as a by-product of economic need. -- Grade: A-

The story within Lorna's Silence is built on tiny increments of tantalizing details, meted out in penurious droplets and with chest-tightening tension that suggests that what the brothers wanted to be when they grew up were boa constrictors.

Rating: 4/5 -- The results are no less emotionally gratifying or personal than in [the Dardennes'] previous films, but Lorna's Silence is mysterious and mystifying in an entirely new way. Full Review

Rating: 2.5/4 -- Lorna's Silence doesn't work, but it's a beautiful misfire.

[A] somber beauty of a French-language drama....Every time predictability threatens, the plot takes an unexpected turn...

Included in Chicago Sun-Times's The Best Foreign Films Of 2009 -- [I]t's about personalities, as intensely observed as always with the Dardennes.
