Have you just committed a crime and can’t get the stains out of the carpet? Do you want to dismember a corpse, but your saw can’t cut through bone? Don’t panic, Chang-bok and the not very talkative Tae-in, loyal subcontractors of organized crime, can take care of everything. One day, one of their clients entrusts them with a peculiar mission: to recover a freshly kidnapped girl and keep her busy for 24 hours until her parents drop the ransom. Seems easy, except that nothing will go as planned, starting with the very stingy parents and their client getting killed by the competition… VOICE OF SILENCE was selected as one of the 12 best screenplays of the Venice Biennale and ended up on the Sundance shortlist. Eui-jeong Hong’s debut feature is a rare gem and a bold mix of genres, moving from dark thriller to social drama and comedy. VOICE OF SILENCE is about family and feeling abandoned. It’s about violence and love. About the paradoxes of life, like that unbearable voice of silence that cries out its helplessness. And it’s simply terrific.
