At 90 years of age, Ulises (Pepe Soriano) is already a few years past his prime - which is when his apartment building's super Daniel (Lautaro Delgado) finds him aimlessly wandering the corridors again, he thinks nothing of it and just takes him back to his apartment ... where he's expected by his constantly nagging wife Dalia (Marilú Marini). Later that night, upstairs neighbour Elena (Desirée Salgueiro) violently knocks on Ulises apartment door, begging him to let her in - and he would, too, if it wasn't for Dalia suggesting it might be a trap - and minutes later she throws herself out of her window, right onto Ulises' little terrace and dies in the process. Now Daniel sees to it that her corpse is removed speedily, but the whole affair upsets Ulises. What's even more is that Elena's death seems to repeat itself in a kind of endless loop, a look Ulises gets sucked into, to a point where he makes connections from her death to his own past - but he's an old man addled in his brain, so who would believe him ...


A very unusual piece of horror, basically because it's told from the perspective what's best called an unreliable witness, a man suffering from dementia (what stage of dementia is never made clear), so for the most part it's never clear what's real and what's just his attempt to piece random pieces of his life together to make sense to him, what's actual horrors and what's his mind playing tricks on him, with this question at least in large parts resolved only at the very end of the movie. But while this might sound like terribly confusing, it's actually what makes the film so effective and also fascinating, as this way the narrative really manages to take the viewer down a rabbit hole to a world with a logic (or lack thereof) of its own. And Pepe Soriano in the lead gives a very believable and even relatable performance, while the direction with a knack for atmosphere gives him a great canvas to act in, making this film a very rewarding experience!
