The first half of Magic Magic is greatly enjoyable: the performances are strong, the photography is crisp and immersive, and the mood is ripe and ominous.

It's refreshing to see something with a dramatic heart beating beneath its discomfiting exterior.

It's a big load of much-ado-about-nothing dressed up in writer- director Sebastian Silva's arty movements.

Magic Magic's odd denouement is a dramatic curveball that smacks the viewer square in the face.

Silva, like all good film-makers, is a magician. But thanks to the last-minute fumbling, we're left with a broken spell.

A shy and emotionally fragile American girl is trapped with four strangers in a vacation home in Chile when her friend ditches her to deal with personal issues.
