Sixteen people get stuck in a subway car in NYC for several days, without communication, hope, way to escape, and a fatal sensation that they are going to die. A raw display of human behavior when one confronts the possibility of death.
A very original concept, backed up with some good acting, and a great/modern score by Paul van Dyk. The Mexican roots of the movie add the special thing about it. With some Japanese influences, the fictional world is filled with Latin/Mexican influences, from the colors and everyday life situations, to the plot in which the movie is based (corruption, role of a child in Mexican/Latin society, gambling, etc...). Sad about it, its that the movie barely gained recognition, not even in its own market, and I wonder if it even came out of Mexico. Great movie, since it comes from such a simple idea with an uncanny result.
