"We often miss even the things we see".

The World of Silence is an aptly named movie packed with suspense, action, a bit of comedy and a lot of emotional, heartwarming moments. At first, I was a bit sceptical to watch this movie because I mostly love the romance genre but somehow, I just brought myself to watch it and I couldn't stop.

The movie centers itself around a detective trying to solve a case of a serial killer who targets orphaned girls about 12 years of age. There are many suspects including a photographer who recently became the guardian of a young girl.

As the story progresses, the audience is taken on a roller-coaster ride of emotions as there are many twists and turns in the plot. I believe that there could have been more character development and I wish that the plot didn't seem so rushed (hence my score of 8).

Regardless, this is a superb movie and I recommend it to anyone who loves intrigue and mind-boggling plots.

This review may contain spoilers
"The World of Silence"  makes little sense, it's an almost spoiler as the title suggests, but it  does not appear in the film as it even fits, a rather quiet drama with  an exciting thriller but missing something else, the biggest weakness of  the job is because of the crime plot for Kim's hunt with /  for murderous girl relationship, what is missing after a good start and  a brief suspense until the resolution is a farce is the interaction  with the narrative once the cast did not give it his best.
