Movie Info

The viewer assumes the role of detective in Catalan director Jaime Rosales' intense, avant-garde thriller following a middle-aged Spanish man as he goes about his daily business, and ending with a startling shock to the system. Everything is viewed from a distance as a typical man purchases a newspaper, dines with a friend at a local café, attends a dinner party, makes love to a woman, visits a CD shop, and stops on the street to make a telephone call. But who is this man, and why are we following his ever move? Are he and his associates plotting something truly diabolical? As the questions begin to multiply, the mystery only deepens.

All Critics (5)

A painfully old-fashioned trick, a game played many times before, by far more thoughtful filmmakers with greater commands of and ideas about their medium.

Reverse Shot

The sudden shock in tone may have another different and unintended effect than the director intended, relief that finally something has happened.

Film-Forward.com

What would have made an entertaining, if experimental, 20-minute short film has here been extended beyond sanity.

Eye for Film

Makes one urgently crave what its title promises.

Lessons of Darkness

Essentially the equivalent of a news story where the facts are still forthcoming.
