The ending comes too shocking and too artful to get such prediction
12 August 2013 | by (Dhaka, Bangladesh) – See all my reviews

The story centers upon a missing corpse of a wealthy lady from morgue. This is an excitatory thriller, framed with severe mystery and unthinkable twists.

El Cuerpo is a stirring creation from Spain that literally causes my goosebumps.

Actors do their job well-enough to depict the script more puzzling, more shifty. Their believable acting makes the investigation occult; clues are popping up but not helping much to unravel the plot. The ending comes too shocking and too artful to get such prediction. Excellent screenplay; Kudos towards director Oriol Paulo___
