A nice little movie
23 April 2011 | by leirbag_pSee all my reviews

'El Gato Desaparece' is a nice little movie, nothing else. Don't expect to find a life changing story, an intricate or deep plot or a fantastic twist at the end. It's just a nice way of spending ~90min.

Lius Luque plays a Professor who has been recently released from a mental institution after a violent outbreak. His performance is correct. Beatriz Spelzini plays his wife, who is apprehensive of her husband's apparent full recovery. Her performance as an increasingly nervous women is outstanding.

There's nothing more I can say because there's not much more happening throughout the film (which is not a bad thing). The score is great.

Overall I found it entertaining.

7/10
