This is definitely the opposite of slick. The directing and acting have a somewhat home-baked feel, and conversations often show the stilted character of afternoon soaps. It's not fast-moving, and when they try some action toward the end, the staging gets downright silly, like they should have practiced a few more times.
But the story is strangely compelling, with a nice onion of a mystery that gets unpeeled until everybody is a suspect. The whole thing at times reminds you a bit of a Spanish "Twin Peaks", with about the same level of realism, although no owls. And you really don't know what exactly is going on until the last episode.
It's compact at six episodes of a little over an hour, and the storyline does not invite a second season. Worthwhile checking out.
