Gritty and Halluciogenic
12 November 2003 | by (Barcelona) – See all my reviews

This is one of the more interesting Spanish films of the last few years and it is a debut film for the director!! Eduardo Noriega turns in one of his best post Abre Los Ojos roles. And the female lead is interesting as well. Cool and tense gritty and halluciogenic this film is worth the time spent watching it. I very much look forward to future efforts by the director.
