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
Tiny Mix Tapes
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...
Wall Street Journal
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.
Jean-Pierre and Luc Dardenne (THE CHILD) direct this drama about an Albanian woman torn between connections to three men and her own dreams. Lorna (Arta Dobroshi) is an immigrant living in Belgium. Though she has a boyfriend, her involvement with the Mafia leads her to marry Claudy (Jérémy Renier) so she can get citizenship. But her life is further complicated when she is told to marry a Russian criminal, putting Claudy's life in danger.
