Storyline

A young girl's husband rents a lovely home just outside of Madrid so she can spend the last three months of her pregnancy in peace and luxury. Unfortunately, just as they arrive at the home, the girl realizes that it is the place where she had secretly had an illegal abortion some years before. The clinic is long-gone, but this doesn't ease the woman's disquiet. Things get even worse when she learns that her upstairs neighbor is the old abortionist's assistant. Written by Ørnås

So-so excursion into one's dark past
26 July 2009 | by (Williamsburg, VA) – See all my reviews

Joachin (Javier Escriva) surprises his young wife Nieves (Silvia Aguilar) by renting out the titular location for her to carry out her pregnancy. It isn't a pleasant surprise for her because, prior to being a rental home, the location was an abortion clinic that she visited when she was 17. Naturally, she is troubled by this and suspects her husband is trying to get her to confess to her past. Caught between the two is Isabel (Alida Valli), the homeowner who has stuck around to help the pregnant wife. This is a moody Spanish horror film from Eugenio Martin (HORROR EXPRESS, CANDLE FOR THE DEVIL). It does manage to have a few effective scare scenes, but could have been a lot scarier. Plus, the film's entire plot revolves around two characters not remembering having met 5 years previous. The end also happens way too quickly when the opportunity for prolonging the suspense was definitely there.
