Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga is a prequel to Mad Max: Fury Road and will be released in German cinemas on May 22, 2024. The first ratings are already coming in and promise great things.

Why so quiet?

Like director George Miller towards The Telegraph explained, the main character Furiosa will only speak 30 lines of dialogue in the film. This makes her one of the more silent characters in a Hollywood film. The reason for this concerns the style of the film.

Anyone who remembers Mad Max: Fury Road may remember that Tom Hardy, aka Mad Max, practically only communicates with grunts and groans in the first half of the film. Somehow fitting for the post-apocalyptic wasteland where anarchy reigns and language atrophies.

But according to director Miller, that's not the reason for Furiosa's noble secrecy. Rather, the director sees the language as having a slowing effect. A plot can be accelerated with minimally placed dialogues, which obviously suits Furiosa well. George Miller specifically said:
