Storyline

Edo Celeste is a renowned crime novelist, who is writing the final book in the series about his alter ego, detective Felipe Aranda. Edo is obsessed with the disappearance of his fiancee Celia, which took place the day of the 2007 earthquake in the southern coast of Peru. Seven years later, an enigmatic woman brings Edo dozens of cryptic photos that may help solve the mystery of Celia's disappearance. Edo senses that he's being tempted into a dangerous game, but believes this is the only way to find his fiancee alive. A labyrinth of clues submerges Edo in a race through the streets of Lima and the deserted beaches of Paracas. His final destination will confront him with the ultimate riddle any writer could face.

Solid effort
9 September 2014 | by AlthanisSee all my reviews

I don't usually review movies as I'm better at watching them than writing about them. However, I saw this last night at TIFF and since there's nothing here I thought I'd start things off.

The film was shot in Peru, the director's original home, and tries as much as possible to capture that noir look. It's a nice film to watch, and the plot is interesting and leaves you trying to fit everything together in your head after the movie's complete.

I thought the acting wasn't anything to write home about, but was perfectly fine for this movie.

Overall: 8/10. I'd recommend it.
