Product Description

Sia left Iran years ago illegally and lives in Sweden with his wife and two children. Realizing he wants to go back for a visit, he decides the best place to go is a free port, an island, which does not require a visa. But being there does not fully satisfy his nostalgic longing; his old home is on the mainland. Danger will confront him if he returns. He must decide what is most important: his future or his past.
Farsi with English subtitles.


Mousaian's second feature is a personal breakthrough- in its depiction of a modern man alone and nearly suicidal. --Robert Koehler, Variety

Mousaian's second feature is an accomplished mix of allegory, understated drama and absurdist comedy filmed in a muted, detailed palate. --UCLA Film & Television Archive

With its subtle style and poetic pace, Silence of the Sea explores one of today's existential nightmares, made even more melancholy by the empty intimacy of cell phones and the lonely feeling of never being able to reach the shore. --Geoffrey Gilmore, Sundance Film Festival

This arrived on time and was acceptable. The transfer is not high quality, and you feel like you are watching a videotape. But this seems to be par for the course when you are getting films made in Iran.
