The Silenced or it's Korean title translated Gyeongseong High School : The Disappearance of the Girls made me dive into the story right from the start. The story, i believe took place sometime during the Japan colonization in Korea. And the mysterious disappearance of the girls happened in this boarding school.
Joo Ran (Park Bo Young) as the centre point in this whole story shoulder her own weight and really makes me pity her and at some point embodied her; i feel her pain.
A mysterious incident took place one by one and it makes me wonder what's the deal with this shady boarding school who only has a very few students and was built way too deep into the forest. It's easy to lay suspicion as to whom is the one behind the disappearance but the real question is why this has to happened.
I'm just a little bit disappointing near the ends because i was expecting some historical reference to be the reason of the disappearance but surely the story take it's own twist. I've watched too many movies, I started developing an expectation on a certain pattern that a movie with this genre should have.
Not really the ending that I want but it's worthwhile for anyone who loves mystery/thriller/crime movies. Happy watching.
Sorry for this kinda crappy review. I haven't written in a while.
