From that moment on, everything changes. Elsa bursts into his life like a whirlwind, determined to teach him that the time he has left to live ---- be it more or less ---- is precious and that he should enjoy it as he pleases." -- jbhifi.com.au

A gripping police procedural and a disquieting immersion into a twisted psyche, The Silence of the Lambs swept the Academy Awards (best picture, director, screenplay, actress, actor) and remains a cultural touchstone"--Container
