    We saw it last night. Long movie. I'm going to try and find a translation of Shusaki Endo's original novel to read now.

    He's like a chameleon, he can act good cop/bad cop.

    I like his accent, smooth.

    He is. Evidently he put a lot of time an effort into Silence, considering it to be something approaching a magnum opus. Many critics reviewed it rather negatively, though. I saw it, and dragged the Misses along with me. I thought it was pretty good, and neither of us, one a former Catholic and the other a nominal Catholic, found anything offensive about it. Like I remarked earlier in this thread, I'm actually in the hunt for an English translation of Shusaki Endo's original novel, so I can make an objective comparison to the movie.
