29 March 2020 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

Movies that are quite claustrophobic are not easy to watch. I had no idea where this was going and while it is confined, it also is showing and going places. The acting is grand even in a closed setting. I can't even begin to imagine what a person goes through. And not just physically but also psychologically, which you can see and feel the effects towards the end.

Spanish language thrillers are quite something and if you like the genre, then you probably will have an idea what they are able to do. There is not much of a story here, this is about a setting and an evolution. It is about society and about human survival, even when it doesn't seem like living at all. Many great ideas, a lot of sexual encounters (violent and otherwise too, hard to watch - no pun intended and not trying to make light of many of the situations) and quite draining to watch to say the least ... but very well done
