My video store offered this as optional B pic free of charge when lending a blockbuster. And to be honest here the blockbuster was topped (what was it again? :) Eerie camera effects, a very strange setting from start time skips and ongoing suspense made this a pleasant and intelligent surprise. Well not that much of a surprise as it's from Spain, see? (Open yr Eyes...etc) Characters were believable, are allowed to grow emotionally with film time and torn apart like Angela with clinging to their companions and her own feeling for justice.
Don't expect a big bang at the end, better be prepared for 90 minutes of tense movie experience - I recommend it!
