Handsome entrepeneur Abelardo Rios Clarios arrives in the sleepy little town of Villaserena, rigs up speakers throughout the village, and begins broadcasting "Radio Nobleza". For a small sum of money, they can now buy the opportunity to express publicly what they couldn't say before. Villaserena's closets are quickly emptied of their skeletons, old quarrels are revived and secrets are no longer. Abelardo soon discovers the beautiful Celeste, a beautiful young woman virtually imprisoned behind the walls of her father's house, and romance ensues. Written by
Unlike the love for the cinema and the love a small town had for their local movie house, The Day Silence Died is far from a great movie. INstead of the cinema, radio is introduced to a small Spanish town in the middle of nowhere. The movie opens slow with an arrival of a theater group. All the characters that are introduced are quickly gone as the movie moves many years into the future. Although the event is important to some degree, the bulk of the opening is wasted. The small town slowly accepts a mysterious lodger who brings radio into their lives. Soon, he begins to take advantage and becomes apart of their lives. He is kicked out of town by both the law and the clergy. Hard to say that this movie is a comedy or a love story because at many times during the movie, both are absent. At the end of the movie, the Narrator vanishes, the 2 young (and most attractive people in the movie) leave and the man with his radio is kicked out only to enter another city. Unable to show who this movie is about, there is no star of the film. Leaving questions unanswered and having no hard-line moral to share with the audience, the Day Silence Died is a nice little story but far from anything amazing or news worthy.
