90. LORNA'S SILENCE
dirs. Jean-Pierre & Luc Dardenne
world premiere 2008
U.S. release 2009
Because the controlled but restive camera found such probing, poignant poetry in a scenario
that afforded no easy choices, and because for me, this is the movie where the Dardennes most allow
the story to yield up the spirituality and the metaphysics, rather than the other way around.
