after a suicide starts investigate in the catholic church and at the "Salzburger- Festspiele"
6 October 2005 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

i had seen all movies with Josef Hader and "silentium" is his best. I like the language of Vienna and the Austrian humor.

absolutely excellent movie!

Josef Hader is a great actor and he plays "Brenner" as an unrepeatable character. the movie plays with black humor with the catholic church, with some good blasphemy scenes, and on the other side with the conservatives of the Salzburger Festspiele. this is magnificent. this movie is art!! with great actors (e.g. Udo Samel, Jürgen Tarrach... etc.)

highly recommendable!
