Nacho Vigalondo, 2007


This is a Spanish time travel film starring Karra Elejalde. Very well made, well written, well acted. Elejalde was compelling in the lead role as Hector. I found him to be a sympathetic character within the first 15 minutes of the film. This film has the same grittiness and sophistication as "Primer" (2004), but on a much higher budget ($2.6M vs $7K). Not sure where that budget went because the film is absent of big budget effects, CGI, makeup, etc. It just didnt need it. So rich in storyline, the 90 min. runtime went by quickly and I was completely satisfied with the ending.
