Silence 2016

This film is based in portuguese Jesuit priests, they could at least choose one portuguese actor for this. But maybe American-British actors can represente the influence of west europe in Japan.

The movie made me feel compassion for the missionaries, the villagers and even made me understand why a government would go to such lengths to "murder" an idea. Even though I believe that both sides are wrong, the government being the worst of it, doing to the extreme to stop indoctrination and the church trying to pass their believes as the only truth that, for me, is totally taking advantage of people who are in a almost complete state of despair.
But you cannot stop the feels, even if you don't believe, you can fully enjoy this movie.

Faith in Jesus and His Church hardened after watching this testimony of love.

Great piece of work. Script managed to put two religions face to face but no side taken, barely no parciality exhibited IMO, which is a hard to achieve feature on a movie or book. Several interesting details exposed of the amazing, divergent and arguably brutal Japanese ancient culture. A gentle touch in crucial history with multiple mentions to Portugal, Spain and Dutch, thrown into the mix. Great staging by the cast. Even the title Silence that is two-fold reflecting the silence from the villagers and secrecy as well as the silence from God himself.

I am not a believer. Never have, never will be. And I know exactly why.

Technically a good movie, though.

Best movie of 2016 hands down. I cannot get though my head how people think La La Land and Moonlight were better than Silence. A masterpiece, you should watch it!

I stop the movie at 10minutes because I can't handle with "portuguese" priests with names pronounced in spanish and speaking english. Japonese have japonese names and can speak japonese but portuguese can't. The name is FERREIRA not FERRERA!

I watched this because it was nominated for Oscar's Best Cinematography, it has a good cast, and it held a promise of insights into a journey of faith. I was hoping for The Mission, but found no journey, much pointless suffering and, to be honest I almost fell asleep (something I never do in movies). I gave it a 6 (Fair) out of 10, and that may have been overly optimistic. Perhaps a 5 (meh) or 4 (boring) might have better reflected my response. Sorry Andrew and Liam - it's not your fault - you did your best with what you had.

So, what would you think when you watch the movie? Is it just history for you? Or is it a lessen for us who are living in this age? When I saw this film, I thought Martin was trying to describe what happens even nowadays in Japan. "Japan is a swamp. A swamp where nothing can root." Some universal truths don't work in this country. They are changed in Japanese ways. It is really scary. Some people notice it, but others don't. Actually, I guess almost all of Japanese people don't notice the situation of Japan even though many of us feel frustrated somewhat about it. How scary it is! 2+2 is not 5.

Fantastic movie about the persecution of Christians in medieval Japan. Pristine cinematography. And historical to boot.

The main question of the movie is whether it is acceptable for a priest to apostatize in order to save his flock.

"Silence" is like religion: well-intentioned, fine for some, and a bit long winded. The grand ideals this film takes on are lost in a lack of editing that would both shorten the movie and help to focus it. Sadly, this Oscar vehicle for Andrew Garfield doesn't really go anywhere after it runs out of gas halfway through.
