European style movie
22 May 2005 | by (Kenya) – See all my reviews

Beautiful 'film noir'. I was pleasantly surprised. Decent and inspired acting and a moving Carbonell at the end -driving back to the airport- with a wonderful (as always) Michael Lerned.

With eye to detail: the plastic bag where the table cloth was wrapped in, is just visible in two more scenes before it gets a place in Nestor's luggage (I like those details very much, it's shows respect by the director). The pace is just great: very slowly and thus giving me time to enjoy the weird and strange atmosphere. A very un-American movie; perhaps that's why it's more popular in Europe? Hope Carbonell finds more inspiration (and money!) to make more of these beauties.
