Nice and vigorous Argentina/Spain co-production plenty of suspense , thrills , twists and turns
7 October 2016 | by (Santander Spain) – See all my reviews

Original and ingeniously basic premise full of tense images and intrigue in spite of developing only one scenario . Dealing with a paraplegic computer engineer that moves in a wheelchair . This freaky and clever film chronicles fear , desperation , paranoia of a computer expert called Joaquín (Leonardo Sbaraglia) who faces off a completely Kafkaesque situation when in his cellar starts hearing noises and voices of bank-robbers whose leader results to be a really violent murderer called Galereto (Pablo Echarri , also producer) . This is a thrilling film in which the paraplegic starring quest to find answers and solutions to vanquish some extremely violent delinquents (Walter Donado , Laura Faienza , Facundo Nahuel Giménez , Javier Godino) and subsequently planning steal the bank , creating an alternate access to the tunnel , just before them . Joaquin works repairing old computers and is threaten by foreclose , he then rents one room to Berta , a beautiful young girl (Clara Lago) , and Betty (Uma Salduende) , her six-years-old daughter . Berta lives with the drama of his autistic daughter , who two years ago stopped to talk unexpectedly . At the beginning uneasy coexistence gradually softens , turning in a friendship and a romance between them .

The picture succeeds because of the thriller , tension , as well as a superbly written script delving into the human psyche in such extreme situation and our instinctive urges for survival . As the paraplegic executes set-ups that will threaten all the plan provided by the criminal robbers , though Joaquín's scheme crashes against a couple of secrets about Berta and her daughter . The paraplegic very well performed by Leonardo Sbaraglia works utilizing his skills and talents to survive the deadly trap , as using his intelligence he attempts to avoid the robbers carry out their aims , but at the same time he is blocked emotionally by the remembers of his wife and daughter , dead after an accident time ago . Despite the claustrophobic scenarios and average budget the picture manages to be intelligent , intriguing and thrilling . The good thing about this film is that the director made it on limited scenarios , only having to do one or two sets , yet the movie works on many levels but is constantly reconfigured . Very fine acting by Leonardo Sbaraglia as Joaquín , a computer engineer in wheelchair trapped by the imminent foreclose of his house due to the debt with his bank . Clara Lago also shines as an exotic dancer who is really a lure sent by the chief of a little band that they are digging a long underground tunnel . And support cast is frankly excellent , such as an extremely baddie , masterfully played by Pablo Echarri , along with Walter Donado , Facundo Giménez and Javier Godino . Special mention for the veteran and very old Federico Luppi , here playing a killer Police Inspector .

Stirring and intriguing musical score fitting to tension by two great composers : Lucio Godoy and Federico Jusid . Splendid cinematography , and naturally , plenty of dark and shades by Félix Monti . The motion picture , decently produced by Gerardo Herrero and Axel Kuschevatzky , was professional and originally written and directed by Rodrigo Grande . Rodrigo was born (1974) in Rosario, Santa Fe, Argentina . He is a fine writer and director, known for Historias Breves 2 (1997) , Presos Del Olvido (2001), Cuestión De Principios (2009) and this Al Final Del Túnel (2016) at his best , being his fetish actor Federico Luppi who here plays a corrupt cop . Rating : Good , better than average
