Storyline

Adrián, an aspiring and talented orchestra conductor, receives a video message from his beloved Belén, telling him with tears in her eyes that she is leaving him and that she cannot carry on with him. Shattered by the unexpected news and puzzled by the inexplicable decision, Adrián gets help from the local Police to solve this case of disappearance. Time passes by and still no news of Belén's whereabouts, so life gradually begins to return to its normal pace, when out of the blue, a new woman appears in Adrián's life. With no progress at all in Belén's case and all things possible, no one will be able to see beyond the facts and comprehend the truth that often lies hidden in the most unusual of places...

Great thriller
21 April 2012 | by (Republic of Macedonia) – See all my reviews

I love watching films in general, but thrillers are my thing. I love the intense situations and the way my hands sweat while I'm watching it. But, I'm very sorry to say that I haven't watched a good thriller film in quite a while. But La Cara Oculta was a splendid dish of what I like. What would people do for love? How crazy can they become? How thin is the line between love and craziness? This is a film when the roles of good and bad change really quickly, and when you start making your own conclusions on the topic, suddenly something happens and you instantly change the course of your thoughts, seeing someone else as "the bad guy". I really, really loved this film! I think it's a great thriller and it sure kept me interested till the very end. Don't you dare miss it!
