Based on True Events….
On Friday March 9th at 7:20 P.M, one of the most shocking and twisted incidents ever recorded be fell Sarah Murphy and her father. Their ordeal lasted 88 minutes. Witness these true events in real time.
It is inspired by a murder from the 1940s in which 2 mutilated bodies, and a number of disturbing photos, were found inside a country home. Based on that event we reconstructed the possible last 80 minutes before the murders.
From the Director:
The Silent House was born as an experimentation project of a group of friends and I always believed that the best way to tell this story was with no cuts. In a single sequence I could transmit an unsettling and squalid atmosphere, so that the viewer can travel through the house and the sensations in the same way as the characters. By telling the story without ellipsis of time or space, you achieve a natural realism adequate to transmit the necessary emotions.
The final scene, after the credits, helps to enrich, even more, the feelings and individuality of the characters. It is a dreamlike scene that helps to go deeper into their conducts.
