I am honestly puzzled by the tepid reviews of this movie. I found it to be one of the most entertaining films I have seen in years. The plot is thoroughly intriguing, filled with unexpected twists and impossible dilemmas. "Boy Missing" draws the viewer in, and doesn't let go until the very last scene. Spanish directors have definitely carved out a strong presence in the suspense/thriller genre internationally. It is, however, a somewhat cerebral movie - not like the "no discernible plot" Marvel Comics drivel that dominates the film scene in America and across the globe. You have to actually think about this one; and if you do, it will stay with you for a long time. Highly recommended.
