SUEÑO Y SILENCIO / The Dream and the Silence

SUEÑO Y SILENCIO / The Dream and the Silence

With his fourth feature The Dream and the Silence, Jaime Rosales brings a delicate meditation on mourning, focussed on the void left by a tragic death. After a car crash, killing a family's eldest teenage daughter, all attempts at communicating between the parents are deafened by the brutal silence left by her absence. Eventually, the film evolves into an evocatively emotional look at family dynamics that maintains its delicate, tightrope nature throughout, and confirms the director, on the face of his growing body of work, as one of the finest filmmakers working in contemporary Spain. (Jorge Mourinha, The Flickering Wall)
