I really like twisted endings, especially when they are so cleverly crafted that they shock and amuse, well this is not the case.
Without spoiling it for anyone, I have questions-for everyone involved in this movie.
However, before that, I have to mention that I was really intrigued about how it would end,( it was really late, and twenty minutes before the end, I went to sleep), because as interesting as it seemed to be, it was losing its appeal as an outstanding idea for a movie.
I have to mention that even though I had given a pass to the lack of a real character development I was still into it.
Let's get to the questions and arguments: Is it morally right for the characters or anyone in real life to forget about our own principles just for our own benefit? What about a commitment for what we really believe and pursue?
IF the character in peril had been more valuable than the life of so many innocents (at least in the eyes of the ones watching the movie), I would have "accepted" it.
And yes, I tried to put myself in the same situation, and yes,I get the point!, "the drastic change of heart in the main characters" (even though is merely a betrayal to what a decent human should do), after all, that is the way they were introduced to us.
Without argument: the "moral dilemma", (unfortunately), in here is resolved with,just a quick: "cut and that's a wrap." and that is unreliable and the main problem with this movie.
As I said, I wondered: what I would have done myself in real life? But... the writers, actors, and director did not provide with a real motivation to feel for it, the undeniable justification for the ending do not exist, and certainly, just because,"I am doing the girl" and I made a mistake, do I have to betray anyone or anything that should have been more important?, not just for me but for others...
The credibility fails as the interaction between the filmmakers and viewers developed in a different way for what it was intended.
After all, the consequences of the actions are the result of reckless and erratic behavior combined with a misguided-moral-compass of the two brothers, and it becomes difficult to figure out who comes more dumb and senseless: Mario, the 'genius' (?) or Guillermo and let's not talk about evilness because who 'is the less despicable and rotten' in here, truthfully not even the "bad guys" after all they just become spectators for the human misery, and just a caricature of what they could have been. To add to it, what a waste for the talent of Joaquim de Almeida.
I truly understand the point of the story: changing heart and mind in a full circle, but I have seen shorts that described in a more powerful way what this movie intended.
By any means I would say: "stop watching as soon as the bedroom scene , after the question in the hospital,after the car accident, then get a notebook and write your own ending", because unfortunately, TRES60 (2013) does not give real space for discussions on any moral, philosophical or whatnot issue at least not with the way it was presented.
Finally I have a recommendation for these filmmakers: "Would You Rather" (2012) because that is the way you convey the message on a movie.
