Storyline

The room in which they find themselves turns out to be a shrinking room that will crush them if they do not discover in time what connects them all and why someone might wish to murder them. Written by Luis Piedrahita & Rodrigo Sopeña

Trivia

The red wallpaper pattern and the interface of the PDA resemble the layout of the room when seen from overhead, the same as the diagram drawn on the blackboard to figure out how to put the shelves together. See more »

Goofs

None of the supposedly super-intelligent characters ever thinks of using various small hard objects as wedges at the junctures of moving walls. Also, they waste time moving heavy furniture around instead of breaking out the obviously wooden entrance door before it disappears. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Galois: Do you know what prime numbers are? Because if you don't, you should just leave now.

Crazy Credits

During the end credits, all accents are added later than the text appears. The character Hilbert is seen doing that continuously during the movie. See more »

User Reviews

 
Unfortunately, worse than expected.
2 July 2019 | by gokselcinSee all my reviews

Neighter the story deepens as expected; thus the mysteries of the movie fails to raise tension, nor the narration presents a satisfying visual attraction. Good idea, sufficient prologue and unsatisfactory final.
