As the new night nurse at a soon to be abandoned children's hospital readies the last group of orphans to leave, it becomes increasingly clear that these are not normal children. Something living in the hospital, something the children call the "mechanical girl," has a terrifying hold over them and will stop at nothing to keep them in the hospital with her forever.

Goofs

At the end of the movie, Robert takes unconscious Amy out of the hospital. The cardiac monitor shows absence of cardiac electrical activity, i.e. asystole. Asystole is a type of cardiac arrest classified as "non shockable rhythm" and its initial management exclude the use of defibrillation. They should have started cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) maneuvers instead. Furthermore, when an electrical shock is delivered, a typical waveform should have appeared in the monitor. See more »

Scary and sensitive
19 December 2005 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

"Fragile" is one of the most scary movies I've ever seen and one of the most beautiful and sensitive. I saw it in Venice and I can tell you that people were really impressed at the end. Some people were even crying, specially women. I confess I was one of them. Calista's performance is deep and strong. The same with Richard Roxbough, Elena Anaya and specially the little girl who plays "Maggie". She is incredibly good. Really special. It's definitely the best movie of Jaume Balagueró. Even better than "THE NAMELESS". A very sensitive approach to the ghost genre in the best classical tradition. Serious and emotional horror stuff.
