2013. A mysterious epidemic spreads across the planet; humanity develops an irrational fear of open spaces which causes death within seconds. Soon, the entire global populace is trapped inside buildings. As Barcelona descends into chaos, Marc sets off on a quest to find Julia, his missing girlfriend - without ever venturing outside.
The second of two movies by directors David and Àlex Pastor that take place in a post-apocalyptic world. The first one is Carriers (2009). See more »
A single bullet from a small gun as the one Marc uses in the sewers is not powerful enough even to just pierce a gas can as the one he shoots at. In any case, even if it worked, there's no reason for the can to explode. See more »
This is an entertaining, not pretentious survival movie that has not zombies in it and that's a lot to say nowadays.
The movie takes place in Barcelona and tells the story of a software engineer caught up in the middle of the disaster. Nothing extremely original but it is just well done. The film-maker paid attention to details, cast performance is rock solid specially Coronado's and the pacing is perfect. The main actor also delivers but I didn't like his voice very much and sometimes couldn't make out what he was saying.
It sends some messages and social commentaries but not in a pretentious, superficial way. Maybe I would have hoped that the main female character ,played by actress Marta Etura, be more important in the storyline.
This is a good European catastrophic movie. We need more of these!
