Audience Reviews for El cuerpo (The Body)


Not convincing enough, but just about okay if you've nothing better to do. Try it as a no-brainer and you might be better entertained than disappointed (in case you go expecting a taut mystery/thriller).

El Cuerpo is a perfect example of the magnificent flexibility, which the Spanish film makers are presenting us with in the recent years. This thriller, or should I say black comedy, will keep you guessing right to the end, and when you think you've figured it out - well,guess again.... Belen Rueda is certainly on forme here, and I personally can never get bored with her excellent and far - reaching acting skills. I highly recommend this atmospheric, suspenseful, bizarre tale to anyone, who is looking for a original yet Hitchcock-esque thriller.

Excellent thriller that grabs you from the start, making you think of a thousand and one possibilities of how this could happen what happens but never expect a final as it is: sublime. Brilliant interpretation of Hugo Silva and Jose Coronado.
