Trivia

The seaport where the two friends say goodbye is not the one at El Hierro. The producers chose instead to film the scene in Agaete seaport, Gran Canaria (a completely different island to the East), due to the overwhelming feeling the hight cliffs and steep mountains in the background provide, in line with the film's desolate atmosphere. The actual port at El Hierro would have disrupted that feeling, being more populated and placed in an area of gentle slopes. See more »

Psychological Thriller
20 October 2009 | by See all my reviews

There are quite a few good movies from Spain, covering the horror thriller. This one starts really good and has awesome cinematography and really good actors. Still in the end, it doesn't completely deliver on the premise.

One of the main problems being, that it too foreseeable, but still tries to build upon a twist, that you can see coming a long way, before it actually gets revealed in the movie. The hints are there of course and it is pretty nicely done. Maybe if this is your very first thriller, you might be a bit more excited. But all in all, you can watch this, just be patient with the movie and enjoy it's setting and the "view".
