The pic's thrills remain consecutive rather than cumulative, and fail to resonate.

all at once a bizarre love triangle, an even more bizarre ghost story, and a mystery both personal and (mildly) political.

I'm not sure "La Cara Oculta" can stand up to much scrutiny - there's at least one gaping plot hole - but it's plenty of fun while its 93 minutes are zipping by.

Audience Reviews for La Cara Oculta

The Hidden Face unfolds like a typical ghost story in an eerie haunted house. For the first half, it basically is. However there is more to this picture than meets the eye. Director Andrés Baiz, who co-wrote the screenplay, has fashioned a fascinating fable. The modern mansion is photographed with an appreciation for its beauty, but also evokes something sinister. Actor Quim Gutiérrez who portrays our lead protagonist is pretty bland unfortunately. A more dynamic personality would've been preferable, but Martina García and especially Clara Lago are attractive support that engage the emotions. The drama plays with expectations and has at least one surprise that is completely unforeseeable. Warning: Don't watch the trailer. It spoils everything. It's a most unusual love triangle built on insecurity, mistrust and jealousy. An enjoyable thriller that entertains with its creepy twists.

While not predictable outright, it's not mysterious enough either to be called an outstanding flick. Works fine on a note of an average thriller. Worth a shot if you're running out of options.

What begins as an apparent ghost story full of the most basic, worn-out clichés soon turns out to be an ironic, claustrophobic and original idea that cleverly plays with the conventions of the genre - but ending though on an unsatisfying note.
