This is a thrilling Argentina/Spain co-production being well paced , suspenseful and skillfully made
23 August 2014 | by (Santander Spain) – See all my reviews

This is a highly suspenseful and cerebral mystery , filled with twists and turns . Mystery , intrigue about bizarre facts happen in a block of luxurious apartments in Buenos Aires . The same team - actor (Ricardo Darin) and producer (Axel Kuschevatzky) , who made ¨Tesis Sobre Un Homicidio¨, ¨ and ¨The secret of you eyes¨ bring us another suspenseful film : ¨Septimo¨ . The picture is interesting and some moment brilliant , and the actors are quite reliable such as Ricardo Darin and Belen Rueda . As a father (Ricardo Darin) gets into a desperate search to find his two children who disappeared while going down stairs from their apartment in the seventh floor . A bit later on , his anxious mother (Belen Rueda) appears upset to find her children .

The film contains tension , thriller , drama , mystery and plot twists , including decent suspense with tense sequences especially in its final part , in a unexpected denouement , near of the end . Hitchcock-style psychological thriller , being surprisingly good and compellingly realized . The original as well as entertaining idea is overspread throughout the movie , but not totally satisfactory , including conventional pitfalls . The main cast is frankly fine , such as Ricardo Darin as a wealthy lawyer working for a dark firm and Belen Rueda as his Spanish wife . Darin is an excellent leading figure of the most important Argentinian movies such as : "El Faro" (1998), "El Mismo Amor La Misma Lluvia" (1999), "Nueve Reinas" (2000), "La Fuga" (2001) and especially known for ¨The secret in your eyes¨ and ¨El Hijo De La Novia¨ . Belen Rueda also starred several hits in Spanish cinema such as ¨El Orfanato¨, ¨Los Ojos De Julia , ¨The Body¨ and many others . The motion picture is pretty well , although sometimes stagy and packs excessive turns ; however is entertaining for continuous suspense . Sinister and mysterious atmosphere including a colorful cinematography , as it is finely photographed by cameraman Lucio Bonelli . Suspenseful and stirring musical score by Roque Baños , a expert on dark environments as proved in Cell 211 , Fragiles, Machinist, Sexy beast, Intruders and Evil dead .

The film was well produced by various producers , such as Julio Ariza , Álvaro Augustín , Blanca Formáriz , Jordi Gasull , Axel Kuschevatzky , Andrés Longares , Nicolás Matji ; all of them have produced a lot of successes in the new Argentina/Spanish cinema . Being professionally written and directed by Patxi Amezcua who formerly realized only ¨25 Kilates¨ and wrote and ¨Bruc , ¨El Desafío¨ and ¨El Viaje De Arian . The movie will appeal to suspense buffs and Ricardo Darin/Belen Rueda fans . Rating : 6,5/10 ; Good , better than average . It's well worth watching and contains some really thrilling scenes and suspenseful images .
