An enigmatic tale of four people whose lives are intertwined by destiny and are subject to the laws of fate. They discover that luck is something they cannot afford to be without as they gamble with the highest stakes possible in a deadly game from which only one of them will emerge intact.
There is Tomas, a young thief and the sole survivor of a horrific plane crash; Federico, who survived a massive earthquake and discovered he has the power to rob those around him of their good fortune with a touch;
Sam, a casino owner who is the ultimate survivor after losing everything but his own life in the terrible conflagration that enveloped Europe during the Second World War;
...and Sara, a policewoman who walked away from a car crash that killed her family and becomes obsessed with uncovering the truth behind a clandestine gambling ring where death and luck intermingle.
A truly original film for the director of 28 Weeks Later, Juan Carlos Fresnadillo. The camera work and color is amazing as well as rich acting and sneaky subtitles. The texture and richness of the camera and story take you into a underworld like no other. A world where people gamble with lives, fate, and love.
The characters all need, bleed, and risk everything all in the name of luck.
The unexpected turns of such a refreshing original story is a cool breeze on a hot sticky summer night. I feel I am rambling...HA.
This movie was amazing. I love it. Its the type that the more you watch it, the more you love it. This is my second time down Intacto street and I have a feeling the third will be the best.
An amazing movie that should all watch. But don't take my word for it.
