Confusing as well as intriguing picture jammed with drama , tension and fantastic deeds
Passable dramatic thriller with plenty of twists and turns ; being confusingly developed . Mystery , drama , intrigue about bizarre facts happen a Guardia Civil/actor (Gustavo Salmeron) , his wife (Goya Toledo) and a sculptor/filmmaker (Jose Coronado) interrelated each other by dark fates . The film deals with a Guardia Civil , Gustavo Salmeron, being transported by a warp time into other dimension where becomes an actor shooting a film whose director is Jose Coronado . Amid the chaos, he finds several surprises here and there . There is a strange premise developed along the movie , this is : What would you do if you found out your life is a movie? .
The film contains mysterious events , drama , plot twists , a bit of comedy and , adding tense sequences especially in its final part in an unexpected denouement. Fantasy thriller filled with surprises and being regularly realized . The original as well as fantastic idea about a man transported another dimension is overspread throughout the movie , but not totally satisfactory , including conventional pitfalls . Other main excitements about the picture , will be in the intervention of a good plethora of Spanish actors who realize professionally competent interpretations such as Gustavo Salmeron , Goya Toledo and Jose Coronado . The support cast is pretty good such as Rocio Muñoz , Enrique Villen , Elia Galera and a newcomer and nowadays successful actress , Maria Valverde , as Jose Coronado's daughter .
Colorful ad well as evocative cinematography by Jose Gonzalo . The picture was produced in medium budget by Eduardo Campoy . Eduardo is a winner producer of various hits such as ¨The girl of your dreams¨ or ¨La Niña De Tus Ojos¨, ¨Sin Noticias de Dios¨, ¨Corazon de Guerrero¨, ¨Pasion Turca¨ , ¨Teta and Luna¨, Baton Rouge¨ and occasionally director such as ¨Al Limite¨, and ¨A Solas Contigo¨ . The motion picture was professionally realized by Vicente Peñarrocha at his first film , though has flaws and gaps , being some moments embarrassing . Vicente subsequently would direct series and episodes for TV , such as ¨La Fuga¨, ¨Angel o Demonio¨ and ¨Sin Tetas no hay Paraiso¨.
