the art of emotional silence
29 December 2010 | by art_criticsSee all my reviews

The film SUSPECT which I reviewed at the Montreal Film Festival masters the art of emotional silence, with its brooding, suffocating tones of village life, where gossip is everywhere among sanctimonious neighbours, and no-one's life is private.

What to do and who to believe when you live in a small village and your husband is suspected in an unresolved murder case? And that he's not from the village? And that your mother still doesn't accept him taking over the family business after the death of your father? And that you find a shirt stained with blood, and a locked cabinet? And that above all he insists he's innocent? Can love overcome doubt...
