A great little film from Severin.

A high class escort woman named Elisa (Carmen Sevilla) witnesses her neighbor dropping the corpse of his wife down an elevator shaft.

The man, Miguel (Vicente Parra) then forces her to become his accomplice and slowly a very strange relationship developes between them. However, Elisa is not happy.

This Spanish murder mystery is at once compelling and thought provoking. Watching these two try to keep their crime hidden is nothing short of excellent story telling.

The film takes a sudden and bizarre turn about 3/4 into the movie and we are treated to one of the best twists I have seen in a movie for a very long time. I won't spoilt it, but all is NOT what it seems.

The cast is excellent and so is the direction by Eloy de la Iglesia. Sevilla is beautiful to look at, and makes for a perfect victim we do feel sorry for as she was in the wrong place at the wrong time.

If the Spanish nystery film is your cup of tea, check out the film for something a little different.
