Storyline

The plot is based on a true story that happened in the late '40s in a small village in Uruguay. The film focuses on Laura, who, second by second, intends to leave a house, which hides an obscure secret, unharmed. Laura and her father Wilson settle down in a cottage they have to renew since its owner will soon put the house up for sale. They will spend the night there and repair the following morning. Everything seems to go smoothly until Laura hears a sound that comes from outside and gets louder and louder on the upper floor of the house. Wilson goes up to see what is going on while she remains downstairs on her own, waiting for her father to come down. Written by Anonymous

Unforeseen turn of events make for an impressive movie...
3 July 2012 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

I picked this up with the impression that it was a ghost movie, and hoping that it would be nothing like "Paranormal Activity". Having seen "The Silent House" ("La Casa Muda") now, I must say that I am genuinely impressed, despite it not actually being a ghost movie as per se.

The story in "The Silent House" does lay out the mood for a great ghost story and it is good at building up suspense and having a spooky atmosphere. And it is filmed in a dark, rather rundown and disarrayed house, which only adds to the spooky atmosphere. The story is about Laura and her father who have been hired to fix up the facade of an old, rundown house and having to spend the night in the old, empty house, but the house has a dark secret...

What was really impressive about this movie was that it was shot in one long take, without cuts and editing, that really impressed me. Especially because it must have had added a lot of pressure on the actors (well actress in particular) as there was no room for mistakes and do-overs. But they pulled it off so nicely, it was really a treat to watch this movie.

Also, "The Silent House" sent me through a couple of impressions of the movie, starting out with interest and a hope to be scared, but then when you find out about the photos in the attic and who it was that did the strange things in the house, i started to think the storyline was so implausible and sort of stupid, because what they had shown prior up to that made no sense. But then as the credits started rolling and you see all the photos, the truth about the story and what happened in the house dawns on you, shedding a whole new light on the entire movie, and that totally turned me around in my opinion again, turning to awe and amazement. And the ending where Laura walked through the forest and out onto the field, well that was really a good ending.

This Uruguayan thriller was really a surprise of a movie, and I am really glad that I bought it and added it to my DVD collection. If you like movies that leave you with a lasting impression and something to think about, then you should definitely watch "The Silent House".
