Speak no evil, 2022

Directed by Christian Taffdrup. With Morton Borian, Sidsel Sim Koch, Vidja van Hoyt, Corinna Smulders, Leva Forsberg, Marius Damslev, Hisham Yacobi, Leah Bastrop Ron and Jesper Dupont.


A Danish family meets a Dutch family on vacation. What should have been a good weekend slowly starts to show as the nasty Danes try to be polite.

You will lose patience when you see Danish guests who do not make smart decisions in a Dutch family or continue to accept poor people. Of course, it's a basic decision-making in the horror genre, but director Christian Tufdrup (co-writer of Mads Tufdrup) not only does Speak No Evil, but weaves it into the fabric of the narrative.

A lot of creative elements still work into the overall narrative, but Say No to Evil Mysteries and Frozen Hearts doesn't take anything away. As the credits rolled, my first thought was, "Thank God they're fictional characters." It was the only way to calm my nerves and make up my mind. A lot of movies want the audience to care about the characters like Speak No Evil, which makes me pray inside and beg for a happy ending (something I don't want). This is how messy, unpleasant, and sensual things mix.

Of course, it's hard to explain why the narrative succeeds in a spoiler-free review, because the last 15 minutes re-contextualize what we think of these characters and what the film could be (the reasons behind some of the horrors go from sincere to stylish, terrifying, never-before-seen evil). can But a general survey of the similarities between Denmark and the Netherlands, and how different these particular families are, is arguably not dynamic without its global characteristics. Speak No Evil is a funny title (and there are some funny moments here) because it's a story about the voiceless and how they have to use their voice and voice instead of turning to kindness, even if they doubt it. themselves.

Danish couple Bjørn and Louise (played by Morten Burin and Sidsel Sim Koch, respectively) are vacationing in Tuscany with their young daughter Agnes (Liva Forsberg) when they meet Dutch couple Patrick and Karin (Fedja van Huyt and Carina Smulders) and their young daughter. Dr. Abel (Marius Damslev). They talk, eat together, and briefly introduce themselves. Key details include Louise's choice of vegetarianism, Bjorn's skinny appearance and trembling when faced with inappropriate situations, Patrick's medical skills, and Abel's inability to be born without language (or subhuman).

After the party, invite Patrick, Karen Bjorn, and Louise to their remote forest home to bond and have fun. Bjørn and Louise still don't know Patrick and Karen very well, so they hope the escape goes well (although Agnes is revealed to have someone to play with). From there, families use reverse parenting techniques, and that's all you need to know by joining Say No Evil.

The events are moving and at times terrifying, with moments of family reunion (an uneasy feeling when a character does something truly terrifying) and an incredibly tense ending. Strong, he said. Soundtrack by Sune Kølster.

Say No Evil is a powerful film, with four words that will stick in your head for a long time.
