***1/2 Very good effort for a first film. A sensitive subject, three excellent actors and some great scenes that already announced the coming of a new auteur among us. The encounter between Angela and Chema at the cafeteria while both characters are listening to their walkmen (Hard Rock for Chema and classical music for Angela) is a perfect example of the way cinema may manipulate an audience. Recommended.
I love the mystery & The tension it built. And the most fascinating thing is how this movie explore possibilities of hows, whos, and whens. the kinda movie that kept you guessing til the end, and made you think its predictable and end up being not.
Tries to construct a type of excessive and parodic form that made certain films of the era distinctive and fresh(Watch Bitter Moon!!), but “Thesis” is made with a lazy hand. It lacks a basic poetical originality and subtlety... The film in general left me feeling underestimated.
Una profunda reflexión acerca de la imagen como referente de lo real y su impacto en términos mediáticos. Lo interesante aquí es que el espectador atraviesa un proceso racional de análisis de la imagen al tiempo que sufre un proceso emocional en el cual la película juega con el morbo y el ojo mismo del espectador. excelente suspenso.
Just when the movie starts to get a little predictable, it surprises you with another plot twist that revives the tension and constantly keeps you guessing who is the killer. The suspense its really well developed, the plot revolving around snuff films its original and interesting, the acting its pretty good and the main characters share a lot of chemistry on screen (Chema its unforgettable). A great debut film.
Some good ideas and good acting (Chema is a wonderful character!) but many events are just too unbelievable. I started thinking "why on earth don't you go to the police?!" very early and kept holding on to that thought.
