When the military appear alerted by the explosion, they kill in the bridge to one of survivors and capture a second, Vicente Roig, which leg was imprisoned under a great rock.

Great movie!!
9 February 2020 | by siriusx-64982See all my reviews

This movie was refreshing! The plot is slow, crude (in a good way), and full of nice and smooth plot twists. It feels so real, unlike hollywood crap...

I think this movie is underrated. I loved it. Great plot, great movie. I just they keep doing movies just like this one.
