schizophrenic trapped in snowy mountains
2 February 2013 | by See all my reviews

The main protagonist of the film, very well acted by Gustavo Salmeron, is a husband who is trying to rekindle a marriage that for some reason has gone wrong. It is alluded to that he suffers from paranoia - or bouts of schizophrenia. The wife hesitates, but accepts an invitation to a snowy mountain resort, to amend the marriage - for a last chance.

Beneath the calm veneer of Raul (the protagonist) the mentally unstable cracks begin showing as he begins being taunted by his weird-acting wife and their diabolic child. They begin mentally torturing him, and use a local Argentinian handyman / home-wrecker to stir up more jealousy and chaos. Or is this all in Raul's imagination? Raul (bless, him) goes on a discovery, to find out what is the truth, and what is his paranoia.

Nice atmospheric film, great main actor, lots of snow and ice and Pyrenees mountains.
