Appreciating how others see the world leads to enlightenment. The film portrays a little-known part of Japan's history in which preachers from the west try to introduce Christianity in the face of the established customs and social order of Japan.

Martin Scorsese’s SILENCE tells the story of two Christian missionaries (Andrew Garfield and Adam Driver) who face the ultimate test of faith when they travel to Japan in search of their missing mentor (Liam Neeson) – at a time when Christianity was outlawed and their presence forbidden.

The celebrated director ends his 28-year journey to bring Shusaku Endo’s 1966 ac­claimed novel to life.

Silence Reviews

“This is not the sort of film you "like” or “don't like.” It's a film that you experience and then live with."
 – RogerEbert.com

“No one with a genuine belief in the possibilities and mysteries of cinema would think of missing Silence. It's essential filmmaking from the church of Scorsese, a modern master who lives and breathes in the images he puts on screen.”
 – Rolling Stone

“A taxing film that will not only hold up to multiple viewings, but practically demands them.”
 – Variety
