Amenabar's school
15 May 2006 | by See all my reviews

Amenabar 's "los ostros" (the others) is now a milestone for Spanish directors .That film overshadows every other work of the last ten years as a complete and perfect fantasy and horror film.(and Amenabar's two precedent films are at least as important and innovative)

"Nos miran" is a decent attempt.His main subject -the dead are watching us and are jealous of us cause they are no longer part of the game- is ambitious and the director is not always up to scratch: the subway/train trick was already used too many times ("Jacob's ladder" ,the Spanish "Art of Dying" which is cast in the same mold ,or Autant-Lara's "Marguerite de la nuit").However the writers have included interesting elements: the cop's own story,the grandma who seems to know more things than she claims.And ,mainly in the first part,the director does not forget to show some ambiguity: everything can only happen in the hero's mind.Fortunately,special effects are kept to the minimum,which builds a threatening atmosphere.Not bad.
