De acuerdo, es porno-miseria, diálogos ridículos e inverosímiles, desenlace tonto. A la gente en el exterior parece cautivarla el hecho de que esto "ocurrió en realidad" y que ahora se hizo en un único plano. Premian a un explotador.
A high concept movie that follows a family who's mother is fitted with a remote bomb around her neck which they are trying to get off. The opening in Touch of Evil is really the best comparison in terms of what the audience feel. We expect the bomb to go off during the single take(!), lasting nearly 90min, but we don't know when or if it all. Uncompromisingly realistic and cold. A one-time-watch for sure but still 5*
The exercise (one-shot (long) movie) is still quite something, respectful, technically very hard, and in general very effective.
Too bad here we have too much time in the boring jungle, too much time of boring pvc cutting. That makes a boring movie :/. (but very realistic in the other hand)
