Just lucky I guess.
- Intact review by Kurtz
Intacto is a stylish and original film that spawned a Pendulum video. Unlike “Voodoo People,”it tells its tale in an unhurried way, but interrupts its ruminations on fate and fortune with bursts of action, most of which are centred around Monica Lopez’ identikit trigger-happy cop-with-a –past, or increasingly bizarre trials of luck. Possibly to redress the balance, the director has made nearly all the other characters rather cold presences, especially Max von Sydow’s arch-gambler who is so cool, even in a sand-coloured suit, that he can’t even be bothered to learn Spanish for the movie and delivers most of his lines in his inimitable Sydowese English which we are expected to believe that all the Spanish characters understand perfectly. Didn’t work for us on holiday in San Sebastian!
