Cannes 2012: The Dream and the Silence – review

While director Jaime Rosales doesn't make things easy for his audience, this rewarding and cerebral film lingers in the mind

The Spanish director Jaime Rosales is one of the most interesting and valuable film-makers at this year's Cannes. He's a director who first came to notice here with his deeply disturbing 2003 film The Hours of the Day, and then his Solitary Fragments, about the Madrid bombings, in 2007, a movie that sadly never found its way to the UK. His work has become steadily more experimental and demanding. Bullet in the Head, in 2008, was a mysterious, almost wordless movie in which the characters were filmed from afar, as if under surveillance. Now The Dream and the Silence arrives in Cannes, and in many ways it is his most difficult, and yet rewarding film: a work that lingers in the mind.

Rosales sure doesn't make things easy for his audience. The Dream »
