This was indeed a unique film about love. I like the German title of 'Silent' Love, rather than the English title 'Secret' Love, as it was not a furtive affair and 'silent' better describes nature of the two main characters. Watch it with an open mind, as you might find the pace a little slow, but if you sit through it, you will be rewarded. Both Otterstedt and Laborit are perfect for the roles they play; Antonia (Laborit), a nun who has yet to live out her ambitions and Mikas (Otterstedt), an ex-circus performer who uses his nimble hands to pickpocket. Through Mikas, Antonia slowly opens her eyes to the world and herself. This movie left me longing and a little broken-hearted, but the ending was unpredictable and surprising. I loved the intimacy of the characters through the use of sign and found their acting natural. This movie stayed with me for a really long time after I've finished watching it. I wish I could find out more information on the two leading characters, as I found them to be fascinating. Highly recommended.
