Is it suspense? A telephone guide is more intruiging then this movie
Full disappoitment after all these good reviews in imdb. This movie contains all the sins of an european thriller: it's slow, "philocophical", absolutly out of genre.But it seems that Amenabar feel himself like new Polanski. Terrible mixture of serious and entertaining cinema, although next Amenabar film, Abre Los Ojos, shows that he's not a giftless director. He can conctruct cinematographic atmosphere but it's clear that he must say stop to himself as a screenwriter.
