Excellent
2 September 2004 | by (Vancouver, canada) – See all my reviews

I had the opportunity to watch the film here previous to the Latin American Film Festival Vancouver which starts on September 12 at the Pacific Cinematheque in van. with the debut and premiere of A Silent Love in this city. The film is very elegant, a love triangle with cultural references. Excellent co-production. Vanesssa Bauche is incredible in the film, the cultural differences are evident and the shock that many of us have to endure when leaving for another country. The film also features Susana Salazar who doesn't speak English by the way and it is the first feature of th4e Argentinian living in Montreal Federico Hidalgo, very talented director. Aguados if you want to see a nice film with a modern twist in relationships don't miss this one.
