Riding on the horse of deceit, Unspoken speaks on issues the African society naturally shoves to the background, homosexuality being the focus. Premarital sex might have been unsuspectingly endorsed, but that is for the church to decide.
A cloud of tranquillity hovers around the film, even when there seemed to be trouble lurking nearby. This might be owed to the combination of location, music score and the noticeable quest of purgation. However, this same tranquillity appears to be responsible for the slightly dismal climax of the film.
Unspoken chooses words over action, but when there is action, it is detailed.
