Goofs

When Martín plays pool, the last hit is visibly difficult. The shot is cut, but the camera does not move. The actors are motionless, but the audience is never shown the moment where the 8-ball is hit - only the ball that is going to hit the 8-ball, then the 8-ball moving to a pocket. See more »

User Reviews

delightful
28 October 2020 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

It reminds so many things. The old plays about murders, the value of past, the clash between worlds and the force of oldness. And it makes that in admirable manner. So, just a delightful film, for beautiful performances, for seductive dialogues, for easy predictability and , no doubts, for the end.
