Silent Ones

A Csendesek
Director: Ricky Rijneke

Hungary, Netherlands, Drama, 2013, 97 min, hungarian with english and lithuanian subtitles, N-16
The young Hungarian woman Csilla (Orsi Tóth) and her little brother Isti (Fatih Dervisoglu) are travelling together without a clear destination, looking for a better life.
One day Csilla wakes up inside a crashed car, in the middle of nowhere, not knowing where her brother Isti is. He is vanished without a trace. Upset and alone, without saying a word, Csilla leaves aboard a cargo ship heading to Western Europe. She flees her country and her past to a cold and lonely life to keep a promise she made to him. But the world she's left behind won't let her go that easily. “The Silent Ones” is a journey through psychological depths, where words, leave the main role to grimly beautiful music and shots of landscape that reflect the inner world of the main character.
2013 - Best Cinematography Award and Best Supporting Actor Award at the European Film Festival (Lecce, Italy)
