Eight candidates for a highly desirable corporate job are locked together in an exam room and given a final test with just one question. It seems simple yet confusing that soon, tensions begin to unravel.
Six different people, each from a very different walk of life, awaken to find themselves inside a giant cube with thousands of possible rooms. Each has a skill that becomes clear when they must band together to get out: a cop, a math whiz, a building designer, a doctor, an escape master, and a disabled man. Each plays a part in their thrilling quest to find answers as to why they've been imprisoned.Written by
In Spain, it was released theatrically, but only in English with Spanish subtitles. It was later dubbed in Spanish when the film was released on video. See more »
When Leaven first checks the rooms' set of numbers for primes, she has to think for a few seconds for each set. The first set of numbers she checks ends in 5; the second set ends in 2. Numbers ending in 2 or 5 (other than 2 and 5 themselves) by definition cannot be prime. Someone proficient at math, as Leaven is, wouldn't need to think about the numbers; she'd register they were multiples of 2 and 5 and move straight to the last number. See more »
I don't wanna die, I'm just being realistic. Do you think they'd go to all the trouble to build this thing if we could just walk out?
Do you think they would have left us clues and let us beat it so far if there wasn't a way out?
You think we matter? We don't.
Put us out of your misery so we can get on with getting out of here.
Oh, you're not getting out of here.
Yes, we are!
No, you're not!
Yes, we are!
There is no way out of here!

This is art. Plain and simple, art. This film reminds me of Memento, a very low-budge film that is better than 95% of the high-budge films out there. Why? Because it relies on the story and the quality of acting to make it great, not C.G.I. and overpaid mainstream actors. Not only is it a well presented thriller, it's also a study of the breakdown of human emotions and sanity when kept in solitude outside of one's comfort zone. The cube tests the characters' ability to function and work together in alien territory while in constant imminent danger. This is just a brilliant film made by a brilliant writer/director. This movie is a must for any lover of psychological thrillers. - Rob
