    All three actors are more than up to the challenge, particularly the radiant Salazar, who feasts upon that rare gift of a role that allows an actress the wrong side of 40 to be funny, sexy and vital without apologizing.
  2. Reviewed by: Scott Foundas
    Largely plays down the ethnic stereotyping to deliver a carefully observed, fundamentally human roundelay about the wonders and horrors of looking for someone to love.
  3. Its charms sneak up on you because of the nuanced performances of Burton, Bauche and particularly Salazar.
  4. 63
    Manages to entertain while saying something about loneliness and culture shock.
  5. Reviewed by: Robert Dominguez
    Strong, subtle performances elevate A Silent Love, a slow-moving drama about an unlikely love triangle from first-time director Federico Hidalgo.
  6. Ultimately, A Silent Love transcends its problem-play situation to ponder how the best laid plans for an arranged marriage are no match against the vicissitudes of passion in a romantically besotted culture.
  7. Reviewed by: Ben Kenigsberg
    The movie can't resist putting its key points in italics, but it maintains a refreshingly unsentimental trajectory.
