Verdict on The Whisper of Silence
The Whisper of Silence is a drama that explores the unlikely rise of a teenage girl in the coffee field industry. She has an uncanny ability to smell which helps her get further in that industry. However, deep down she has a much darker side to how it has affected her.
This is a movie with a bigger message that does need to be addressed. It gets to show the importance of that subject matter within the world. All while showing how life could change for somebody with the right position in life. The performances are strong from the whole cast involved.
