i surpriseBy a customer from London , 11 Apr 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]Nearly two years ago, on an Iberian airlines flight to South America, I found myself watching what looked like a very cheap, very 'cinema verite'-esque foreign film. Mainly due to the rather endearing lead (Bernal - who hadn't yet hit the UK in a major way), I continued watching and found myself drawn into the film in the uncomfortable way in which you find yourself semi-awake during a nightmare. The story is mainly exposed through the lead's home video footage, but the real purpose of his filming, and indeed the real purpose of all of the characters is only revealed in a series of clever and genuinely unpredictable twists quite a long way into the film. The film looks like a student offering, the acting and directing style is unashamedly amateur-tinged, but if you stick with it, which I suggest you do, you'll find the unusual look and sickly intriguing sequence of events might just surprise you. Or was it just me, desperate to be relieved by the airline's spanish sketch-show overkill?

Dotty and not for I.By The KnightWatcher (629 reviews) from Gloucestershire , 15 Mar 2013Romance. Rubbish. Dodgy acting. Awful film. Absolutely hated it. No credible connections or emotions in the love triangle. Very slow. I must have missed something as there are a lot of favourable reviews and some say the last 20 minutes are good but I gave up long before that.
twisted thrillerBy andysbar (34 reviews) from London , 15 Nov 2011a British thriller which mistakes plot twists for tension not exactly bad but not exactly good either ,nice to see tom hardy before he beefed up he is a right geek here.
Not bad at all!!!By a customer , 10 Sep 2011Enjoyable viewing and i was definitley surprised by the end. This film should be seen atleast once. Not bad at all!!!!
Total TripeBy RubyPeach (5 reviews) , 04 Sep 2011Awful film. The acting was questionable throughout. Some great twists. Natalia Verbeke is easy on the eye. Those are the only two positives that I can come up with. Oh and it was thankfully free to watch!
Great WatchBy jujules (1 review) , 14 Aug 2011Very good film, figured out some of the plot but still surprised at the end. Lots of twists and worth a watch.
