Silence is the fantastic movie made by Martin Scorsese. It tells us the story about Catholic missionaries traveling to Japan to serve as priests, a nation persecuting and killing Christians.
Silence was recently made available on Amazon.com and other streaming services online, meaning that you can now purchase Silence or rent it, and thus watch it right away online. That is what I did, and I must say that Silence was a movie that made an impression on me.
I have read a little bit about the movie, and in most reviews they say that the movie is a bit too long, but it is still a masterpiece from the hand of Martin Scorsese. Two Jesuit priests decide to following their calling and travel to Japan, in order to find their former master. From their first moment in Japan they meet fellow believers, people who have been suffering without priests to take their confessions, and people who have been longing to have priests teach them the Word of God. But, life ain’t easy for them. Japan was persecuting Christians, and especially priests had high value. The persecutors did everything in their power to make the priests renounce their faith, even if that meant killing other people and torturing other Christians (or the priests themselves).
Silence ain’t an easy movie to watch, and it sure is a long movie. Christians will be challenged by the faith of the priests and all the native believers in Japan portrayed in the movie, and another valid question is also asked throughout the movie: Should a believe renounce their faith in order to save the lives of others?
