A free fall into the horrifying abyss that hangs between the good and the bad bad. The precise choreography of this drama contrasts with the chaotic night in which a group of violent criminals invade the privacy of an affluent Spanish family. Based in part on real stories of domestic invasion, kidnapping and extortion, the harrowing sequence of events keeps the film’s intensity away from any alternatives, or other distractions that may prevent the indiscriminating passage of an expansive wave of violence, victimizing the perpetrators as well as the offended. The unsettling and clumsy way in which life is taken away from a family, and the devastating invasion of an isolated suburban world, reveal a deep horror that leaves an open wound, infectious and contagious.


Una caida libre en el abismo aterrador que pende entre los buenos y los más malos. La precisión coreográfica de esta puesta en escena contrasta con la caótica noche en la que un grupo de violentos criminales se adentra en la vida privada de una afluente familia en España. Basada en parte en casos reales de invasión doméstica, secuestro y extorsión, la desgarradora secuencia de eventos evita que la película desvíe su intenso poder en alternativas, o cualquier otra distracción que pueda alterar el paso indiscriminado de una ola expansiva de violencia, que hace víctimas tanto de perpetrantes como de agredidos. La inquietante facilidad y torpeza con la que el la vida le es arrebatada a una familia, y la devastación de un aislado mundo suburbano, develan un profundo terror que deja una herida abierta, infecta y contagiosa.
