A taxi driver brings a businessman to his swanky hotel. There, he meets a young woman, who goes with him to his room. Later, she goes out and is followed by a man in the streets. Andrés Goteira”s first feature interweaves the stories of four people and the way their paths cross during 24 hours. A visceral, mysterious and brutal thriller with a special role for the audience.

Andrés Goteira”s assured first feature film is a psychological thriller with absurdist overtones.

Excellently shot and edited, and intriguing throughout, there's something of Quentin Dupieux in this, putting together all the pieces of the puzzle, while involving the viewer. However, this is a much darker film, where violent and disturbing events are alleviated by dry, absurdist humour. Goteira reserves a special role for his audience and without spoiling, it”s safe to say that he enjoys making his viewers uneasy in the same way Haneke did in Funny Games. A visceral, mysterious and brutal thriller that makes us think about our own choices.
