A child is kidnapped. At the police station Silvia and Bernardo, the parents of the victim and Rosa, the main suspect and lover of Bernardo, give contradictory evidence which will take us to the gloomiest corners of desires, lies, needs and wickedness in the relationship of these three characters.
Revenge is lethal and it's ramifications are devastating- Splendid debut Film.
"Wolf at the Door", debut film written and directed by Fernando Coimbra is an amazing piece of film making. A revenge mystery/drama will haunt you long after viewing.
The illicit and extra marital affair can be destructive and it will cost so much, the collateral damage have always been ignored.
Silvia and Bernardo's daughter has been kidnapped and it opens a can of worms when Bernardo's lover Rosa is being questioned as a main suspect.
Fernando Coimbra has written the script with immaculate precision, all the revelations has perfect place and it unfolds as soon as you are going to make acuity about the happening. The characters are well drawn keeping the deceit; lies and betrayal at every point.
Editing, cinematography and soundtrack are just brilliant, completing every frame perfectly; acting by main characters is believable, despair and desperation of the characters can be felt easing by the viewers.
A well done revenge drama which deserves to watched.
