Storyline

In Madrid, the editor of the magazine Ziber-Arte, Alex Cuevas, is invited by Beatriz Bravo to participate in a conference about interpretation of dreams. After the lecture, the participant Natalia Hidalgo from Barcelona questions the lecturer about the meaning of her dreams with monoliths and symbols, believing that they are premonitions. Natalia is obsessed with her dreams and she tells them to the audience and immediately after, Beatriz faints. Alex feels attracted by the sexy Natalia and she gives her phone to him. Then he gives a ride to Beatriz to her home. Fifteen days later, Beatriz calls Alex asking for Natalia's phone number. Alex promises to give it, but he dates Natalia and forgets to meet Beatriz. However, Natalia asks him to meet Beatriz and she shows a tattoo that she made two years ago in Mexico with the symbols that Angelica mentioned in the lecture. Angelica feels that Beatriz is connected to her and might have the answer to her dreams, and her obsession increases. ... Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

See it before Hollywood remakes it
23 March 2008 | by (Denver, Colorado and Santiago, Chile) – See all my reviews

Spain these days has kind of replaced Italy and Britain in offering a European alternative to Hollywood-dominated genre films. These recent Spanish films are enough like Hollywood movies to be dismissed as "rip-offs" by the more ignorant viewers, but they nevertheless tend to have a distinctly European flavor to them as well (which was also true of the British and Italian genre films back in their heyday). However, if anything, it is Hollywood that seems to be ripping off i.e. "remaking" Spanish films these days rather than the reverse. This movie would probably be a good candidate for a Hollywood re-make, but a name cast of Hollywood actors would probably only serve to overwhelm this nifty, efficient little thriller as happened a few years back with "Abre los Ojos", later remade as "Vanilla Sky".

This starts out as a movie that seems to be about dreams and dream interpretation. A woman (the incredibly sexy Columbian actress Angela Cepeda) relates at a conference on dreams some allegedly prophetic dreams she had. This seems to stir something in another woman (Laia Murall, who in contrast to Cepeda, is merely really, really cute) and she faints. The Murall character approaches another attendee, a handsome young male, to get him to put in touch with the Cepeda character. The former seems to have some kind of strange hidden agenda, however (the title of this movie in English would be "Hidden"). At first, it seems she might faking the dream connection in order to have an excuse to stalk the guy, and indeed a love triangle does develop for awhile, but she actually has even more deeply hidden motives that aren't completely revealed until the final frames of the film. This isn't perhaps the most original film ever made, but it certainty keep the audience guessing for awhile.

The acting is very decent and Cepeda, who played "La Colombiana" in the Latin American movie "Pantaleon y los Visatadores" has yet another highly memorable nude sex scene. Check this out before Hollywood discovers it and makes their own bigger-budgeted, but no doubt inferior, remake of it.
