Dialogue of Shadows (French: Dialogue d'ombres) is a 2013 French-Swiss short drama film directed by Jean-Marie Straub, starring Cornelia Geiser and Bertrand Brouder.

Jean-Marie Straub and his partner Danièle Huillet originally planned to adapt Georges Bernanos' 1928 short story "Dialogue d'ombres" in 1954. They made some preparations but soon abandoned the project. Straub revived the project in the summer of 2012, several years after Huilet's death. According to Straub he wanted to make the film because he found the right location on the countryside of Normandy.
The film was produced through Switzerland's Belva Film and France's Andolfi. The actors rehearsed for six months. Filming began on 15 June 2013 and lasted ten days. The crew consisted of eight people.
