Not really Sci-Fi but quite good!
16 May 2015 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

This was quite a good film, I enjoyed it for what it was. A low budget film using a sci-fi template to tell another story. There are only about 4 or 5 actors in the film, meaning its much like a play, with most of the film taking place inside of an apartment.

There were some interesting characters in this, with some funny moments and I liked all of the actors, especially the main two. The plot moved along well and surprised me a little. Most importantly, I was never bored.

I must also mention that I became aware of this film from watching the director Nacho Vigalondo's other film Timecrimes, which I enjoyed even more so. He is a good writer/director and very original. (I must seek out his next film: Open Windows next.)

Overall Opinion: Good low budget film, certainly worth a watch, and make sure to seek out Timecrimes also.
