Martin Scorsese tells the story of two Christian missionaries who face the ultimate test of faith when they travel to Japan in search of their missing mentor at a time when Christianity was outlawed and their presence forbidden. The celebrated director’s 28-year journey to bring Shusaku Endo’s 1966 acclaimed novel to life is magnificent. RogerEbert.com gave the film four out of four stars, stating that, “Silence is a monumental work, and a punishing one. It puts you through hell with no promise of enlightenment, only a set of questions and propositions, sensations and experiences…This is not the sort of film you ‘like’ or ‘don’t like.’ It’s a film that you experience and then live with.”
