Making Noise Quietly

Dir. Dominic Dromgoole. UK, 2019. 1h 35m. Starring Trystan Gravelle, Pauline McLynn, Deborah Findlay, Barbara Marten, Geoffrey Streatfeild, Matthew Tennyson.

Set during varying periods of 20th-century European history, this triptych of encounters between strangers eloquently explores the effects of living in the shadow of three different wars. A moving study of the impact of conflict and the scars they leave behind, adapted from Robert Holman’s classic play.

‘It’s an eloquent film about silences, how they can hurt and sometimes protect.’ ★★★★ Ed Potton, The Times

‘There’s a palate-cleansing lucidity and sobriety to this interesting movie, a narrative triptych, showing three intimate scenes of English (and German) life’ Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
