Average and dull film about a series killer who meets a particular victim
28 April 2012 | by See all my reviews

Sara (Ana Risueño) is a sensible and charming young girl , whose only reason to live is her inability to die , attempting to commit suicide . She is a musician and plays at a Jazz orchestra . Jaime (Daniel Freire) , an attractive serial murderer , equally capable of both seduction and killing . He is a teacher at an elementary school . One morning just like any other in Madrid, two perfect strangers, are just two more people standing on a subway platform . A person falls onto the tracks as the train pulls up. For everyone there, it's a tragic accident. But not for the horrified young woman , as she saw Jaime pushes the victim onto the tracks. She then decides to blackmail the murderous . Despite their , the two main roles feel the utter loneliness of existence in a city of Madrid with four million inhabitants .

The film contains mystery , violence , nudism , suspense in a dark atmosphere but with mediocre tension and intrigue . The hunter played by Daniel Freire and her prey performed by Ana Risueño become involved in an intense and increasingly deep relationship at a distance by means of use of all kinds of modern methods of communication such as mobile phones , internet and web cams . The atmosphere and perverse intrigue enhance as well as the intimate relationship develops . Daniel Freire who holds a strong Argentinian accent makes a passable performance and Ana Risueño is acceptable as a depressed young who leads herself a madness spiral . Both of whom play two gloomy characters with a strong feeling of loneliness, the way in which they utilize each other like meaningless objects . These elements provide the setting for this piece of film noir , giving it its own special quality and environment . In the end it is this obsession with death that brings them together in a dramatic physical meeting , which ironically gives rise to a new opportunity for life . Colorful cinematography by Tote Trenas is good , creating a frightening and scary atmosphere . Jazzy musical score composed by a Jazz man who plays one of the members who take part at the orchestra . The flick was finely produced by the chairman of Filmax Productions , Julio Fernandez , along with his brother Carlos Fernandez as executive producer , they're successful producers and experts on terror genre , producing a lot of hits such as ¨The machinist¨, ¨Rec ¨1¨, 2¨ and ¨3¨ , ¨Fragiles¨, ¨Darkness¨, ¨El perfume¨ , ¨Transsiberian¨ and many others . The motion picture was middling realized by Miguel Alcantud and resulted in a box office failure , because turned to be slow moving and little bit tiring , it's his first film . Miguel subsequently directed ¨Anastezsi¨ that also was a flop , in spite of its good cast as Derek Jacobi and Angela Molina , being the filmmaker's last work . After that , he only realized TV episodes such as ¨Aguila Roja¨ and ¨Internado¨. Rating : Regular and boring .
