An impressive film from first time filmmaker
29 April 2008 | by See all my reviews

SATANÁS is a very controlled, mature film, but not for the faint of heart. It's definitely a film to digest slowly, because it deals with such a powerful subject matter: human nature. It is a thought provoking film (it grows with you day by day) even though I can see how it polarizes audiences - some love it and some hate it (because it can be disturbing). It is undeniable that the filmmakers did a wonderful job in building up the tension; the last 30 minutes of the film are absolutely brilliant. Even though the three stories seem at first hand to be unconnected, they are not. The three characters are battling with internal demons and it is through all of them that the thesis of the film is manifested. I want to add that the cast is impressive.
