The Silent One (1985)

Adventure, Fantasy 1h 35m

AroView: An endearing and visually striking tale of a gifted young mute boy who becomes ostracised by his isolated Pacific community, but finds solace in the underwater world and a huge white turtle.

Filmed in the Cook Islands on a coral atoll representing a mythical Polynesian island, this is a magical tale echoing the rhythms and legends of the Pacific, of village life, and of the sea.
