    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. Its charms sneak up on you because of the nuanced performances of Burton, Bauche and particularly Salazar.

    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.
  4. Puts an unusual spin on some of the clichés of the romantic comedy.

    Strong, subtle performances elevate A Silent Love, a slow-moving drama about an unlikely love triangle from first-time director Federico Hidalgo.
  6. 63
    Manages to entertain while saying something about loneliness and culture shock.
  7. 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.
  8. 50
    Robles and Hidalgo ring enough changes on a stock situation that you're never sure where it's going.

    The movie can't resist putting its key points in italics, but it maintains a refreshingly unsentimental trajectory.
