Hello Everyone:

I saw this film last night at the theater. What a fantastic discovery!!!

I love seeing films that have not been released wide or that just have not been blockbusters at the box office and being unexpectedly blown away.

In short, it is about a woman who grew up as a child in an orphanage. After being adopted, she moves out. In the future, she returns to her former home as an adult. The place is no longer an orphanage and has been abandoned. She buys the place and moves in with her husband and son. And let's just say that strange things start happening.

I loved this film. Solid acting (specially by actress Belen Rueda), great storyline, and beautiful and creepy shooting locations all contributed to my enjoyment of this cinematic gem. Two thumbs up and I will be the first in line when this DVD comes out.

Carlos

I saw this a few weeks back and it is a fantastic film that builds everything up and then springs its trap. Wonderfully done.
