All Critics (19) | Top Critics (5)

Directors Almudena Carracedo and Robert Bahar's documentary...tracks the dogged efforts of those who refuse to let the past stay buried when the suffering it caused is still very much alive.

It may be more than 40 years since the death of Gen. Francisco Franco, but the chilling effects of his brutal regime continue to reverberate as affectingly illustrated in "The Silence of Others."

Informative, if not always as specific as it might have been.

May 7, 2019 | Full Review…

It's intricately fascinating material, even if it doesn't culminate in the cathartic climax that a fictitious version of this story would demand; Spain's reckoning with its history remains a nascent work in progress.

Top Critic

Calls for justice mostly fall on stony ground in The Silence of Others, a stirring documentary about the victims of Spanish dictator Gen. Francisco Franco and their ongoing fight to extract some kind of legal payback.

February 21, 2018 | Full Review…

Though some of the legal stuff is left a bit murky, this documentary is a moving reminder of the harm that comes from denying the truth of crimes done by those in power.
