The Silencing, directed by Robin Pront and written by Micah Ranum, is a thrilling crime movie that takes place in the wilds of northern Minnesota. It stars Games of Thrones star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau as a hermetic cabin dweller caught in a deadly cat-and-mouse game with a serial killer. The movie's atmospheric setting plays an essential role in building suspense and tension.
The opening shots of the film's landscapes, filmed in Sudbury, Ontario, Canada, establish an air of mystery and wonder. The sweeping vistas of rolling hills, wide forests and swift river rapids capture an atmosphere of beauty and isolation. However, as the first bars of Brooke and Will Blair's score strike, a darker note creeps in. An ominous sound is heard in the distance, and as the camera moves closer to the water's edge, it becomes clear that a body has been carried downstream.
Although the story's plot is a bit formulaic and treads well-worn ground, the grizzled performances from both Coster-Waldau and Annabelle Wallis, along with some legitimately fun twisty turns in its narrative, elevate the movie. The atmospheric cinematography, courtesy of DP Manuel Dacosse (The Strange Color of Your Body's Tears), also helps make this a satisfying thriller.
While there are no guided tours dedicated to The Silencing, visitors to Sudbury, Manitoulin Island, Wabakimi Provincial Park and Sioux Lookout can see many of the filming locations on their own. Just be sure to respect any private property or restricted areas.
