Storyline

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 Anonymous

The day that Silence Died (Comedy Romance a la Criolla)
17 August 2011 | by (Santa Cruz, Bolivia) – See all my reviews

It shows the reality on small towns like this one, this town was 400 years old before it was destroyed by an earthquake, but this shows how people behave on small towns like this one. In this case the country is Bolivia, but it could be on Peru, Ecuador, Colombia, etc only the accent changes. Abelardo well interpreted by Dario Grandinetti (An Argentinian Actor) Arrives to a small town without any technology (not even electricity) And brings with him progress (A small radio station called "RADIO NOBLEZA" and along with it a time bomb that would explode on any minute.

Bravo for this Bolivian movie that shows us a young Paolo Agazzi (Director) that on the years to come will show us, how great director he will become.

On the DVD there is a small documentary of Totora (the town).
