All Critics (4) | Top Critics (2)

Although the film ultimately achieves its function to expose deep-rooted and far-reaching social injustice,its visceral representation of harrowing and morally repugnant scenes remains unnerving and questionable.

Top Critic

The good that "Silenced" has done certainly outweighs its flaws, but there are certainly some of those: character and plot tropes that pad out the story but have little to do with it.

Top Critic

Unsettlingly graphic but important exposť of the abuse of hearing-impaired children in Korea stirs the emotions in the most elemental way.

Audience Reviews for Silenced

One of the skeletons that fell out of the closet. Not a gripping tell-tale here, but not excessively boring either.

Super Reviewer

Korean drama based on a true story set in a school for deaf children that are being sexually and physically abused by the teachers and administration. Heart-wrenching portrayals by the kids, well acted by all. Very good movie about a very bad subject.


Disturbing, graphic, painful to watch. I felt sick to my stomach most of the movie. I wanted to scream and cry (I did cry.) This movie is a must see. Child abuse and abuse of the handicapped need to be put in the public eye.
