An atrocious fact: violation and murder of a girl that way of its house was going in bicycle. The repetition of this fact after twenty-three years, in the same place, with the same modus operandi. And the investigation of this new murder that it brings in check to the police. All this taken of the hand of a police officer who could not find the killer and who now is thinking about seeing a connection between both cases on the verge of its retirement.
Ice silence is a German production, of the new director, Baran bo Odar, practically not known in Spain (its previous tape was the movie of the end of its project of career «Unter der Sonne»). It is a question of the adaptation of the novel homónima of Jan Costin Wagner and that obtained an award in 2002; in her he narrates the adventures of a tortured Kimmo Joentaa and Silence of ice it is the second delivery.
Two young people Peer Sommer (Ulrich Thomsen) and Rip-off (Wotan Wilke Möhring) it has something in common than a physical attraction; they like the girls. Peer chases, harasses, violates and kills the Pious kidling, of an absurd and terrible way, while its friend is present dauntlessly at the scene. Nothing does in the tasks of receiving of the corpse either. In the following days Rip-off flees despavorido leaving the place and to its partner. This atrocious event supposes the point of starter of the action. Twenty-three years later the facts recur: death of a girl, Sinikka, that way of its house was going in bicycle. The same modus operandi, the same place, too many coincidences are not to think that there are a work of the same person. Rip-off recalls the events while the police officer who took charge of the investigation and who did not find a culprit recaptures its inquiries again to meet on the criminal.
These are the facts. The action will pass recalling the events and the whole investigation process in charge of quite inept police more dependent on results that of effectiveness where a retired police officer, Krischan, will return on its steps to quarrel because a culprit could not find and if this new crime can owe the same person to itself. In its task he will be helped by a police officer David (visceral and slightly lost) that victim of a cancer has just suffered the death of its wife. A thriller, a black novel but: of what does ice Silence go really?
Ice silence goes of the loss of a dear, of how fragile the life of a human being is and of how we confront this loss. Also he speaks to us about the desperation that supposes this absence and the solitude that it bears. It is a movie that centers more on the personages, its emotions, its reasons, its fears than in the proper action that unleash the facts. The director Baran bo Odar tries to get into the head of the protagonists and make us participants of what happens to them. There are great the points of view where from it attacks this company. On the one hand the mother is of Pious, the first dead girl. Its pain worsens for the ineffectiveness of the police that a culprit has not found. On the other hand there is the pain of the parents of the recent barbarism who have to help to how the police are unable to find the body of the kidling while the mass media harass them if to import its pain for them. The father feels guilty before the reproaches of its wife for not having accompanied its daughter. The police officer Krischan who does not stop wondering where it failed, that is what passed for high while he compares one and another crime. While the inspector David, perhaps, feels guilty only for being alive. Y. especially it is I steal, its remorse, its years of fault, its cowardice for not denouncing its partner and without be delivering to the justice. Point and new paragraph is deserved by Peer Sommer, co-protagonist and vile villain (magnificent personage on whom they me fit a moment of questions but who did not question here for not revealing the plot).
Ice silence tackles a topic as thorny as atrocious: the pederasty in our society. A society where it seems that the hedonism occupies first place over everything and where the "devil" seems that he stands out to its wide ones and does of the computer a good culture medium for those that it has in the sight eye to the small infantes. The director there is ensañado neither with macabre details nor cruel violent scenes. It is enough to see the face that they put before the screen of the computer to see what type of contents it has on its hard disk beyond the technical projects that an architect can have there stored.
Ice silence is a good movie. Perhaps it abuses of some underlined unnecessarily (a clear example is how the police officer meets on the Peer motivation and as in the following scene the proper criminal underlines it). And also we have seen often wives foreign to the activities of its husbands or cases in which there intervenes a police officer who has just retired and cannot leave the case. But there are snags less than not desmerecen the set of a movie that the suspense brings together with the drama and that is provided with a few credible personages. To emphasize the good presence both from the music and of these silences that become uncomfortable or of these dialogues with unfinished phrases or answers not expressed (as often it happens in our lives, not everything has to be perfect in the life / script).
