Storyline

Amid the spectacular festivities of Holy Week in Seville, an aspiring novelist stuggles with his work and pays his bills by composing crossword puzzles. A cryptic recording left on his answering machine demands that he include a certain word in a future puzzle, and he becomes drawn into a spiraling tangle of mystery, danger and confusion. Soon he's forced into participating in a real-life version of a computer game on the narrow streets of Seville, the stakes being extremely high for the entire city. Written by mikhail080@cs.com

Do you really know your best friend?
6 December 1999 | by Quijote3000See all my reviews

From the opening of the movie, a corpse with wood cross, to the end of the movie, Mateo Gil, the scripwriter of Tesis and Abre los ojos, both from Alejandro Amenabar, show us his young, yet great ability. There are many interesting points in the movie. We can think that we know somebody. But... do we really know it? How can you know if your best friend is just a normal person... or he is a brutal psycho that has spent one year on planning how to kill you. Another thing that made me think about, is: why do we do things in life?. The main character is living a boring life, seeing his life from above, waiting for something undefined to happen. How many of us do that in life? Living a slow, motionless life, waiting for the train of the great opportunity to appear. Would we accept the chance to live in one day with more intensity than the rest of your would - be life. I also liked the critic that it makes to the old custom of Semana Santa. There is a confrontation between the JASP generation and the 1000´s year traditions, a fight, in which the traditions have nothing to do against the use of modern day technologies and weapons. There are one minor flaw, that it relies in the female audience, showing a nice guy with women falling around him. In the middle of the movie, you can find many flaws (Why this has to happen this way and not this other, why did he have to do that?) that quickly fall with one of the most interesting switches I have ever seen in a movie To sum up, a really interesting thriller that has many question to think over.
