Some kind of Eyes Wide Shut mixed with the Big Lebowsky
This is a strange film. Maybe it is because of its plot or its cast, specially, the amazing Pablo Carbonell. The movie never seems to get serious, neither the behavior of Pablo, witch gives another kind of vision to a movie that in other treatment could be something very similar to what we saw a few years ago in Kubrick's "Eyes Wide Shut". The same idea with a diferent perspective. A comedy involving a high class secret society and two brothers, whom are the opposite from each other. One of them is the aolder one, leader of his dads company and a responsible and serious man. The other one, the younger, is some kind of Jeff Lebowsky, like Jeff Bridges in the Big Lebowsky, who finds himself involved in the investigation of the vanishing of his older brother strangely linked with a secret society called The Stronghold or Worm or something like this. You must watch this film. It's a well done comedy done by one of the members of the comedy company El Tricicle. Directed with intelligence and with a good domain of the visual language. Outstanding movie.
