Everything You Need To Know About Silence

Silence, Martin Scorsese’s most recent film, has created quite a buzz. Starring Liam Neeson, Andrew Garfield and Adam Driver in lead roles, the film is set to hit cinemas in India this Friday on 17th February, 2017. Based on Shūsaku Endō’s novel of the same name, the film takes us on the journey of two Jesuit priests who face the ultimate test of faith when they travel to Japan in search of their missing mentor.

Silence has been popping up in the news for several years now and is considered as one of Scorsese’s most passionate projects. Before you watch the film this week, we have listed down everything you need to know about Silence.

It took almost 30 years to make

Since Martin Scorsese read Shūsaku Endō’s novel in 1989, the filmmaker had his heart set on the story which he wanted to adapt into a film. With several other projects, the director could not dedicate himself to the film. However, in 2014 he decided to finally bring his dream project to light.

Preparing for the film was not easy

All the actors had to lose weight for their roles. Andrew Garfield learned about the Jesuit faith for almost a year and Adam Driver shed 51 pounds for his role in Silence.

Scorsese took almost no salary

The film met several hurdles related to the script, legal rights and budget before it saw the light of day. When the budget was reduced, all the actors including Neeson, Garfield and Driver worked on a minimum scale and Scorsese took almost no fee.

Shot in the landscapes of Taiwan

Mostly known for his films with largely urban vibes like Taxi Driver, The Goodfellas and Gangs of New York, Silence was a step in a new direction for the ace director as well. While themes of faith, guilt and sin run common in all of his films, Silence was shot in the picturesque landscapes of Taiwan, a new experience for Scorsese.

    I was devoutly waiting for Silence ever since Hugo came in 2011, the first time i heard that scorsese's next going to be a religious epic with themes of guilt, sin and doubt he has tried to explore in all of his best films. Instead he made Wolf of wall street and i had to wait some more. Not that i don't appreciate Wolf but films on the subject of religion are seldom made and when a spiritual filmmaker the stature of scorsese puts his back and soul into it, that certainly is a marvel. With all the critical acclaim it's getting , can't wait anymore!
