Nietzschean runner
7 November 2009 | by (Córdoba, Argentina) – See all my reviews

At the beginning, we may guess that we are watching another classic movie about a psycho, but we are lured by this well crafted story to another more complex level, where all we know about the main characters is doubtful. A strong acting duel lead by Miguel Angel Sola and Leonardo Sbaraglia, can be watched and enjoyed as a thriller. But, in fact, this solid film is an allegory inspired by Nietzsche's ideas about morality, basically, wealth, strength, health, and power (an ancient Greek hero) count as good; while bad is associated with the poor, weak, sick, and pathetic (the sort of traits conventionally associated with slaves in ancient times). The chilling performance of Sola, an strange atmosphere and great dialogs support this very interesting film.
