Julia finds 300 million pesetas hidden in a dead man's house while selling an apartment. She's a 40-ish real estate agent now forced to face the wrath of a very peculiar community (of neighbors), headed by an unscrupulous administrator. Black humor gives way to suspense, closely followed by horror that doesn't take long in coming to a head in undisguised pandemonium. Written by ElianaG

Trivia

Towards the last third of the film, when Julia is searching a way to exit the building, she skips through the dead rich man's diaries and several maps of the house can be seen. But one of the last ones, on the left page, is a drawing of the comic book "13, Rue del Percebe" by Spanish artist Francisco Ibañez. See more »

Quotes

Julia: So kill me, too and stop boring me with your sermons. You're a fraud and a thief, like me, like everybody.
Emilio: No, I'm not a thief. I'm not a thief. I have a right to it, I do. We did the sports lottery together. I helped him guess the scores. He asked me for advice. He said..."Sporting against Real Sociedad"... And I... I... I said..."Tie". I don't know, it just came out of my mouth. No one else in Spain marked "Tie". Just me. I said, "Tie".

Definitely "a must see" !
6 September 2001 | by (Croatia) – See all my reviews

I was really surprised when I watched this movie - only de la Iglesia's movie I watched before this was "La dia de la bestia" (Day of the beast) which was very good but this masterpiece is even better ! Here is everything: twisted plot where all characters are "twisted" (even one that looks good and nice at the beginning turn opposite), atmosphere is great, humor is bizzare and black like a night :) ... and there are some rather gory scenes with amazing action-stunt ending !

I mean, worth watching of any minute - I give it 10 ! Highly recommended !
