‘The Silence’ Trailer and Poster

A retired investigator is called back onto the job in director Baran bo Odar's thriller The Silence, which follows two cases that have eerily similar connections. The story centers on a 13-year-old girl who goes missing in the same spot where, 23 years prior, a young girl was savagely murdered, a case that still remains unsolved. Krischan (Burghart Klaußner), the original investigator assigned to the case, comes out of retirement to try and unravel this bizarre mystery. Music Box Films has unveiled the first trailer and poster for this gripping nail-biter that will have you on the edge of your seat when it debuts in theaters March 8.

The Silence begins 23 years ago on a hot summer day, when a young girl named Pia is brutally murdered in a field of wheat. Now, on the exact same date in the present, 13-year-old Sinikka is missing, her bicycle abandoned in the same spot. As Krischan, the retired investigator of the unresolved case, and his younger colleague David struggle to solve the mystery of these parallel crimes, Sinikka's distraught parents are trapped in an agonizing period of waiting and uncertainty. Meanwhile, their daughter's fate rips open old wounds in the heart of Pia's mother, who is visited by an unexpected guest with an eerie connection to her daughter. The unrelenting summer heat lies over the quaint family homes like a bell jar and behind closed doors, worlds begin to fall apart.

In his strikingly commanding debut feature The Silence, Swiss-born Baran bo Odar adapts Jan Costin Wagner's bestselling novel with his own unmistakable signature. Mesmerizing performances by top European actors - headed by Ulrich Thomsen (The Celebration, Brothers), Sebastian Blomberg (The Baader Meinhof Complex), Katrin Saß (Good Bye, Lenin!) and Burghart Klaußner (The White Ribbon, The Edukators) - enrich this intense drama far beyond the crime genre.

The Silence was released March 8th, 2013.
