Since the movie is one long build-up to a reveal, it offers a lot of time to learn to hate Brondo and everything she represents.

Bearing in mind that the title of the film translates to 'shadowy, indefinite, or marginal' I leave it up to you to decided whether or not patience is one of your virtues.

There's talent here, but Villanueva, like a young artist still influenced by his elders, needs to find his own style or he'll become a skilled yet unexciting copyist.

There are several reasons to stay with "Penumbra" until the bloody end. Cristina Brondo makes this bitch-on-wheels likeable. She is a remarkable actress. And, the directors (Garcia Bogliano brothers) know how to build suspense. C'est bizarre!

The film's ending is a letdown, but it's a blast to root for such a brassy, rhymes with "itch" heroine.

Argentinean import Penumbra is a slick, teasing, well constructed genre offering that rather skillfully exploits audience antipathy toward its bitch-on-wheels protagonist.
