Set in 17th century Japan, the film “Silence” revolves around the lives and struggles of Portuguese Jesuit missionaries. It is chock full of stars such as Andrew Garfield (“Amazing Spiderman”), Adam Drive (“Star Wars: the Force Awakens”) and Liam Neeson (“Shindler’s List, “Star Wars: the Phantom Menace”). The movie will be released on December 23 in the US.
The drama begins with the rumors that Fr. Cristóvão Ferreira (Neeson) has renounced his faith after being tortured by a regime persecuting Christians. Two other Jesuit missionaries (Garfield and Driver) accept to the task to go and find out the truth.
While at the heart of it all is the drama of faith, don’t expect much romanticized piety here. The trailer is “ominous”, full of violence, persecution, and execution. The movie details, for example, how “mizuharitsuke” is done- also called water crucifixion, it is a form of Japanese torture.
It is directed by Oscar-winning Martin Scorsese who struggled for over 27 years to overcome an almost unlimited number of obstacles for its production. The movie cost $46.5 million to realize. According to VanityFair, Scorsese waived his usual director fees and Garfield, Neeson, and Drive also worked for “scaled” fees, despite their records of box-office success.
