Entertaining Spanish thriller
19 March 2000 | by (Santiago, Chile) – See all my reviews

This Spanish thriller keeps you at the edge of your seat. It features Juan Echanove and Emma Suarez, as two unlikely lovers who are each looking for different things in a love relationship. The Emma Suarez character brings as additional baggage a small daughter from a previous affair. They move into "a house out there" or "in the middle of nowhere." Both of these expressions within quotes are loose translations of the film's Spanish title: "Una Casa en las afueras."
