Storyline

Victor is a man who gets to Paris to join his family around their seriously ill father, Max. As the chance of selling the family business begins to disrupt the family relationships, Victor is desperately asked for help by Max. What seems in the beginning mere delusions of an old man losing his mind, begin to show traces of some sort of real 'secret' that is troubling Max's last days. Victor decide to help his father to find that something (maybe just peace) he is searching for. Written by Snatcho

Intriguing and moving Spanish film set in Paris about a dark secret that affects a wealthy family
12 February 2013 | by See all my reviews

¨The city of no limits¨ is a beautiful story and haunting drama , dealing with a hidden truth . This is a co-production Argentina/Spain/France , being well paced , skillfully edited and suspenseful . It is plenty of thrills , intense drama , twists and turns and is pretty interesting . It talks about Victor (Leonardo Sbaraglia), a young who gets to Paris to unite his brothers (Roberto Alvarez , Alex Casanovas , Adriana Ozores , Ana Fernandez) and mother (Geraldine Chaplin) around their seriously ill daddy named Max (marvelous , as always , Fernando Fernan Gomez) . As the chance of selling the family business about pharmaceutic laboratory begins to disrupt the family relationships , Victor is desperately asked for help by Max . What seems in the beginning mere delusions of an old man losing his mind , begin to show clues of a strange secret may be true . Victor decides to help his dad to resolve that something he is searching for.

Interesting Spanish film plenty of thrills , emotion , suspense , intrigue , plot twists and being pretty entertaining . The picture profits itself from a top-drawer plethora of players who give exacting interpretations . Suspenseful from start to finish and dealing with some sort of real 'secret' that is troubling Max/Fernando Fernan Gomez's last days , while Victor/Leonardo Sbaraglia is trying to find it out . Exciting and thought-provoking plot by Enrique Braso and the same filmmaker Antonio Hernandez that deservedly had Goya Award Winner best screenplay . Excellent support actors formed by a Spanish all-star-cast such as Ana Fernández as Carmen , Adriana Ozores as Pilar , Roberto Álvarez as Luis , Àlex Casanovas as Alberto , Mónica Estarreado as Beatriz ; furthermore , South American players as Leticia Bredice , Alfredo Alcón as Rancel and director Cameo , Antonio Hernández as friend of Rancel , although credited, may pass unnoticed. Special mention to wonderful musical score , Victor Reyes composes a thrilling and touching soundtrack that is one of the best parts of the film . Colorful and luxurious cinematography by Unax Mendia .

The motion picture was stunningly directed by Antonio Hernandez . Antonio is a good craftsman , writer , producer and occasionally actor . Antonio Hernández -whose first film, 1979's F.E.N., is one of those never praised enough hidden masterpieces of Spanish cinema- is expert on all kind of genres , such as comedy ¨Apaga y Vamonos , Como Levantar 1000 Kilos , Menor de Males¨ , Historical , ¨Los Borgia¨ , and Thriller ¨ Oculto , Lisboa , The city of no limits¨. And he also directs TV series such as ¨Tarancon , Sofia and Dias sin Luz¨ . In ¨City of no limits¨ Antonio proves to be a very courageous auteur , shooting a magnificent picture .
