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 »
I do love dystopian films. They just hit the right spot in my brain, but only if they are done right. This, was done right.
With believable characters, and a proper amount of back story, this film deals with how humans cope with normal life when something as basic as stepping outside for breath of fresh air becomes impossible.
It doesn't try to be anything overly amazing, but revolves around Marc and his struggle to reunite with his love, Julia, in an unstable world. As they say, it's not the destination - it's the journey. That applies quite well here.
For those afraid of subtitled films, the dialog is sparse enough - do not pass this one by for that reason.
