CLEVER SCRIPT WITH INGENUOUS TWIST IN THE TALE
- The Body review by GF
This smart thriller is an intricate tale of murder and deception, but what marks it out, is the last ten minutes, where the film is turned on it head a la The usual Suspects. Will say no more -watch it for yourself - you won't be disappointed...

In the Hitchcock tradition
- The Body review by LR
El Cuerpo (The Body) is a modern film noir. As we learn more about the characters, every one of them seems to have something to hide. We don't know who to believe. The film moves at a good pace and the story has many unexpected twists. In a way this is an old-fashioned thriller, like a Raymond Chandler story, which holds your attention with its tough characters, suspect motives and surprising plot twists.
