Interesting and original
27 November 2014 | by runamokprodsSee all my reviews

Intelligent, thoughtful, super low budget post-apocalypse film. Yes it's a 'zombie' movie, in that turning into zombies seems to be what's happened to almost everyone in the world – maybe everyone besides our 3 characters. But it's far from a horror film. It's much more a study of a love triangle, of 3 human beings, two men and one woman, living under tremendous stress.

While the film's scope is very limited (we basically never leave the small house the three have barricaded themselves inside), it remains visually interesting, and the claustrophobic qualities of the story are put to good use. The acting is also very solid, key for a film that is ultimately all about behavior. And I really appreciated the lack of exposition. The writer/director trusts his audience to piece together what's happened to both the larger world and our characters, instead of laying it out in lengthy dialogue, or flashbacks. We're simply there with them as their relationships continue to evolve. The film also isn't afraid of quiet moments, letting us "get" things from actors' faces and body language, instead of always using words.

It never quite transcends from 'interesting and engaging' to 'great'. There's not enough emotional or intellectual power for that. But I was happy to take what this unique little Argentinean film had to offer.
