Silent Witness ★★ ½ Do Not Disturb 1999 (R)

Walter Richmond (Hurt) and his wife Cathryn (Tilly) are in Amsterdam with their mute daughter Melissa so Walter can close a business deal. But Melissa witnesses a murder and then disappears, leaving her frantic parents to find her before the killers do. This one turns out to be more of a parody of the thriller genre than a serious example. 94m/C VHS, DVD . William Hurt, Jennifer Tilly, Denis Leary, Francesca Brown, Michael Chiklis, Michael Goorjian; D: Dick Maas.
