    If you've ever had an old college friend pop into your life and discovered how the past impinges upon the present with a disruptive yet positive influence, if your parents have died and you've experienced a mix of elation at your sudden freedom and despair at your own mortality, if you wonder if drinking raw eggs after orgasm increases virility, if you're a blocked writer If you've ever had an old college friend pop into your life and discovered how the past impinges upon the present with a disruptive yet positive influence, if your parents have died and you've experienced a mix of elation at your sudden freedom and despair at your own mortality, if you wonder if drinking raw eggs after orgasm increases virility, if you're a blocked writer or an over-exhausted parent, or if you've ever been a down-to earth, practical couple renovating a home with independently wealthy, decadent, sensual friends who can oversleep and indulge in hedonistic freedoms, if you love a sinister Hitchcokian thriller with black comedy at once realistic and absurd, you'll adore this exquisite gem of a film.

    Sergi Lopez is brilliant. Funny and frightening at the same time. Check out "An Affair of Love" also.

    Rises instantly above its genre merely by taking the time to develop its characters and scenario.
  3. I did enjoy the movie's mercurial moods -- anxiety, terror, whimsical horror -- and I welcomed its confirmation that the work of the devil includes SUVs.
