Storyline

Verena is a young nurse hired to help a mute young heir within an isolated castle in Tuscany. The more she observes the boy, the more Verena becomes convinced he has fallen under the spell of a powerful and otherworldly persona trapped in the castle's stone walls, one that seems to be quickly approaching on her.

Goofs

When Verena cries demanding to the voice on the wall for answers, she breaks part of the wall and we can see how the pieces fall to the ground. Within a few minutes of that scene, Jakob is lying on the floor leaning against the wall and the floor is completely clean. See more »

Quotes

Verena: [talking to Jakob] Your father told me you have her gift. What would she say if she knew you might never use it again? She must have... spoken about the future before she died... about the wonderful things that lie ahead for you. Try to remember what she said. And imagine what she might say now if she could see you.

Ghost or Madness
24 June 2017 | by (Bucks, England) – See all my reviews

I feel like Voice from a Stone explores a story with two types of ghost, those that manifest themselves as remembrance of those we've loved or lost, and those that appear to us simply as impressions in the mind. As a result Voice from the Stone is a classic ghost story, but delivered delicately, free from action, jump scares and overt drama, but rather a gentle move toward a somewhat predictable end of a slightly slow story.

I wasn't convinced of Emelia Clarke's acting or character early in the film, all too reminiscent of her most famous role, eyebrows waggling around like they have a mind of their own - but it felt like as the film grew so did her character. Marton Csokas played the typical brooding, morning, gruff and elusive male / father figure excellently and with support from other members of a small cast the film can only be described as well acted.

I'm never too sure what to say about cinematography - all I can say is the parts of the landscape we do see, the house itself are magnificent. Tuscany is a most beautiful part of Europe, and the implied age of the location adds depth to the mystery that propels the story.

Overall, I expect the film is not going to suit everyone, it's by no means a great - but never the less a good ghost story well worth a watch.
