A crossword puzzle columnist (Eduardo Noriega) discovers a terrorist plot to disrupt Holy Week festivities in Seville in this 1999 Spanish thriller, the directorial debut of Open Your Eyes screenwriter Mateo Gil. Stylish and visually arresting, the film builds up suspense from the columnist’s point of view as he tries to solve a series of perplexing doomsday threats and begins to suspect his roommate and others close to him. But the story becomes silly and predictable after Gil reveals the conspiracy, which threatens the landmarks of picturesque Seville, and a cop-out ending trivializes his earlier achievement. Alejandro Amenabar, Gil’s collaborator on Open Your Eyes, cowrote this script as well and designed the eerie sound track; in Spanish with subtitles. 104 min.
