Two Spanish films in a row. I guess Spain is just populated with tiny perky beautiful women, huh? This one's about a doorman in an apartment building who's stalking a tenant (the aforementioned hot young girl) in an exceedingly creepy way. The movie follows him and his exploits, and eventually you get a little confused about who you are supposed to be sympathizing with (depending on whether you are a sick bastard or not). The film is expertly shot and planned and I was impressed with the graps that the director has on film language. in the Q&A he said he was very keen to use those tools again after two REC movies which rely on "amature" found-footage shooting. You can really tell with how he uses his camera and lighting. The suspense works and I was along for the ride the whole time, but my lasting memory, again just because I'm in this festival, is that it was a bit long. I'm sure I wouldn't feel that way if I saw it stand-alone and even in the middle of a full day of movies I remember liking it.

The lead actor is really great though. His sociopathic blank stare is chilling.
