    It is within a rather tumultuous Cannes selection that the unsettling quietness of "Silent Light" has been illustrated.

With the idea of exploring the influence of an entire universe on a person, the director establishes an unprecedented oscultation of his main character. Although he is played by three distinct actors, his psychic load remains of an incomparable fertility; Jenkins knows how…
