Sincere, but disappointing
7 October 2011 | by (San Francisco) – See all my reviews

A fourteen-year old girl is sexually abused by her father - but in response to this, she builds up a kind of personal resistance. Little would she know that her internal dramas would give her the resources to emerge victorious. THE GIRL OF SILENCE is a plaintive but affecting drama, based on the manga, "Father Fu----" but is serious enough to grab your attention. The film itself describes the central character's efforts to rise above her class and achieve success in the world of manga.

(Interestingly, the manga "Father Fu----" - while raw and borderline-exploitative - is compelling and funny in its own way.)

As you'd expect, the narrative is grim and seemingly hopeless, as the girl attempts to transcend her family situation, which is marred by violence, alcoholism, and a realization that she has no way out. The movie does a good job fleshing out the story the language of manga, but the basic material needs to be more inventive. Instead of relying on a "happy" ending, it would be have been far more interesting to see how the characters resolve their problems.
