Strange and Sad Film
21 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I don't know how to review this film. A young bride of about thirteen is forced into an arranged marriage with an overweight and unattractive man of around sixty who has just been released from a Turkish prison after a long sentence. The happy couple are serenaded to their home by a caravan of friends and neighbors. The young girl, dressed in white and wearing a red veil, is taken to a room and told to obey every wish of her husband. The old man shows up and asks for his ritual water for prayers. He washes his hands and feet, and they pray together. Over the course of the night, they play cat's cradle and he recites a well know Turkish fable. Tradition calls for the white bed sheet to be handed over with the obligatory red stains for proof of virginity. The ending is rather abrupt, but the young actress is very beautiful and convincing as a reluctant bride. Night of Silence is an interesting look at a disturbing cultural and religious practice.
