Over a single weekend, family members gather round a wish-to-die matriarch to powerful dramatic effect in Silent Heart, an intimate family drama that explores with nuance, depth and a slightly oppressive sense of decorum the complex issue of assisted dying. [...] Bille August explores with practiced ease and an alertness the emotional truth of the dynamics of an ordinarily neurotic family in an extraordinary situation.
