Grolsch Film Works - 5/10 by Anton Bitela breathless drama that interrogates the paradoxes of Spain's genetic and circumstantial heritage, and teases out the eternal struggle between freedom and repression, memory and oblivion.
User Review - 10/10 by Elias CLet's be direct, it's the best movie i saw this year. Horrific, beautiful, emotionnaly powerful. I would not say it's perfect, but it's an awesome movie. And a must see for horror fans. Will spanish cinema decieve us someday?
User Review - 10/10 by lola lI have to admit, one of the best movies I've seen for years! It has the story that keeps you occupied throughout the whole movie. It's packed with emotions, got some scary scenes, the actors are good and i really recommend it. A must see movie.
User Review - 8/10 by Wendy KToronto International Film Festival 2012. Haunting story about a man who miraculously survives a car crash that should have taken his life, only to discover that he has cancer and must find his parents to help with treatment. It's this journey that makes him unravel dark secrets from his past. --- Incredibly dark story, with just enough scary scenes for me. The entire cast is brilliant. Spanish movie but with cast from Iceland and Germany. This was categorized in the Vanguard program at TIFF, and it does so well in defining that program - dangerous, sexy, creepy... I don't know what else I can say without giving it away, but it's definitely a suspenseful story. Maybe a tad predictable, but the journey of getting there leaves you at the edge of your seat all the way through.

User Review - 8/10 by Ana Gil y a une ou deux scènes où j'ai failli ne pas regarder (particulièrement celle avec le petit chiot), et le film est assez bien fait, vraiment. La fin est un peu décevante...
User Review - 8/10 by Luigi CThis one was a great film, and it's spoken in Catalan!
User Review - 6/10 by Emily AI kinda liked this movie, but I really don't know what to make of it. It wasn't so much scary as gritty and tragic. It was two parallel stories; one about a man who recently lost his pregnant wife, gained a premature infant son and the knowledge that he's got a rare form of cancer. This sets him on a course to discover his roots. The other story centers on a group of children who can't feel pain, and their childhood of isolation during the Spanish Civil war. They are studied by a team of doctors and nurses in a modified prison, a location caught in the crossfire between the rebels and the fascists. I found this movie really really sad. The story was engaging and it's interesting seeing one character turn into what appears to be a slasher movie killer and still not be the villain of this picture. I'm not even sure what to make of the ending. Enh. This was fine, but lacked closure.
User Review - 6/10 by Alan WA supernatural lesson in Spanish history. Well acted and conceived - reminiscent of recent Spanish suspense films such as Pan's Labyrinth and The Orphange. This was executed with certain flair (with the use of narrative fractures which gives another layer of intrigue though the end 'twist' isnt that surprising if you ask me) and a pretty solid debut for the director. Some minor illogical points might irritate some but on the whole the film carries itself admirably throughout. and is totally engrossing and engaging.
User Review - 6/10 by Ms. ADisturbing and fascinating at the same time.
