Lorna, (Arta Dobroshi), a young Albanian woman living in Belgium, has her sights set on opening a snack bar with her boyfriend, Sokol (Alban Ukaj). In order to do so, she becomes an accomplice in a diabolical plan devised by mobster Fabio (Fabrizio Rongione). Fabio has set up a false marriage between Lorna and Claudy (Jérémie Renier) allowing Lorna to get her Belgian citizenship. However, she is then asked to marry a Russian mafioso who's ready to pay hard cash to also get his hands on those vital Belgian identity papers. Fabio intends to kill Claudy in order to speed up the second marriage. But will Lorna remain silent?

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Lorna's Silence is a gritty, deceptively low-key, no-fuss, no-frills movie of consistent originality and surprise in which suspense arises straight up from the heroine's evolving character.
Fresh: It leaves the audience with neither a sense of uplift nor devastation, but, rather, with something more akin to intellectual appreciation.
Fresh: It's a very good film nevertheless, and in Dobroshi it has a face that passes through every conceivable shade of sorrow.
Fresh: The always reliable Dardenne brothers, Jean-Pierre and Luc, the Belgian poets of the underclass, outdo themselves in Lorna's Silence.
