Mr. Balagueró is so overtaken by his villain that he becomes like César, displaying an eagerness to play the role of tormentor, which kills both the movie's pleasure and its flickering political subtext.
So well-performed, finely crafted & classically constructed that it seems hard to accept that every twist and turn is leading up to a chillingly sick joke; but all this, including the dark humour, contributes to its decidedly Hitchcockian flavour.
