Akin to a mid-quality literary short story, Ascencio builds her immigrant character, destined to be put through the desperation ringer, with slow-moving details and bi-dimension only, without a well-balanced urgency. Once it gets to the midpoint, it becomes darker and suspense-laced, then later wicked, if still subtle, built not on a belief of roads paved with gold, but the reality of monetary survival.
The last half hour truly damaged this film potential. The tension gets so high to the point you expect something extraordinary, unimaginable, something completely ridiculous, grotesque or maybe even funny. Instead you get something you have already seen on those Tuesday evening detective shows. 2.5.
The atmosphere is really well captured.
The director has lots of potential.
potremmo anche parlare di quanto sia caruccio sto film e della buona dose di tensione che incute, ma riesco solo a pensare a QUANTO CAZZO è FRRRREGNA ANA ASENSIO!!!!!?????!?!?!?!? MA è LEGALE ESSER COSI' FICA ?????????????? no vi giuro sto male <3
