      Jay Weissberg Variety Performances are generically earnest, which is the most that can be expected with such an anodyne script where broadly-drawn characters like Kessler are over-the-top in their brutish behavior. Feb 21, 2018 Full Review Boyd van Hoeij Hollywood Reporter Handsomely accoutered ... Feb 21, 2018 Full Review Wendy Ide Screen International This is a solid, good-looking piece of filmmaking which is elevated by a clutch of strong performances from the young cast. Feb 21, 2018 Full Review Uri Klein Haaretz What is the source of the romanticization and nostalgia? ...It is a longing that is especially evident in mainstream films like "The Silent Revolution," for simpler days, when it was possible to distinguish between the good guys and the bad guys. Jan 23, 2019 Full Review Guillem Martinez Oya Macguffin007 A film about how we can change the world, we can, as individuals, improve our lifes in an enviroment that does not want it. An inspirational filme. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 3.5/5 Dec 16, 2018 Full Review Jordi Costa El Pais (Spain) The road to the outcome does not seem to know the virtues of ellipsis - it conditions a valuable set with much to say about the need to position, without subterfuge, or disguises.

      Wolfgang G Das schweigende Klassenzimmer, ist ein Film über eine Abiturkasse in der DDR, die im Unterricht eine illegale Schweigeminute anlässlich des Ungarischen Volksaufstands 1956 eingerichtet. Darauf geraten sie im Blick der Volkspolizei zu Staatsfeinden. Lars Kraume (Drehbuch und Regie) inszeniert den Film mit Feingefühl um den Widerstand einer Gruppe Zeitlos darzustellen. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 08/04/22 Full Review Audience Member I am a student and I live in a country. I am in a dilemma of immigrating for a better life or staying in a country with an undemocratic government. This movie was very painful for me because it was as if I was referring to my own life. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/03/23 Full Review Audience Member You need an example for an excellent movie? Here you have one. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/24/23 Full Review nefasto r Yes ok, it is an interesting little story, but let's be honest: most of the charm comes from "Dawson Creek" meets "Dead Poets Society" kind-of-vibe, and all the dramas involved! Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member An uneven but still effective historical drama that might have carried a much stronger impact had it not been for its strange choice to come up with unnecessary revelations about the characters that feel more like distraction and don't really add anything relevant to the result.
