¨Home Invasion¨ movie co-produced by Spain/Canada about four hooded delinquents carry out a robbery with unexpected consequences
4 July 2017 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

Thrilling and bleak Spanish film with high doses of violence and repulsion . As a mature marriage are about to face the worst night of their lives when some crooks burst into their gated home on the outskirts of a big city looking for easy money . Tension , suspense , and unsettling scenes when a marriage called Matthew (the prolific American actor Michael Ironside) and Elena (Maria Grazia Cucinotta known for¨The postman and Pablo Neruda¨) are assaulted by four burglars : the Spanish Carlos (Carlos Bardem , Javier Bardem's brother) , the Eastern-European Ivaylo (Fabio Fulco) , Helio (Yon González) and Tanya (Ivana Miño) . As they are being tied up while barefoot , mistreated and harassed by the dangerous criminals . As the burglars forcing Matthew to open his safe , but things go wrong and don't go as planned . At home Matthew and Elena are trapped and locked by the ominous band . The marriage is besieged and terrorized by the psycho-killer attackers and they then look for some means to getaway .

This is a violent picture about four hooded delinquents trespass into a mansion , holding a higher-class marriage hostage in their own home , packing shocks , die hard scenario , grisly killings , suspense with unexpected lies will come to light emerging twists and turns . Intrigue and frightening take over them all , attackers and victims , but then there cropping out treason , suspicion , at the worst possible time. The film packs a claustrophobic atmosphere , hair-raising frames , blood and gore . This violent story belongs to ¨home invasion¨ sub-genre , being filmed in similar naturalist and realist style to ¨Michael Hanake's Funny Games¨, ¨Secuestrados¨ by Miguel Angel Vivas and recently ¨Trespass¨ (2011) by Joel Schumacher with Nicolas Cage and Nicole Kidman that bears remarkable resemblance to ¨Transgression¨ . While the look is suitable eerie and frightening , the plot spreads to the breaking point and the ending turns out to be a little frustrating . Suspenseful and thrilling musical score by by Riccardo Eberspacher . Dark and shaded cinematography by Xavier Gil , filmed in little takes with camera over shoulder as well as Steadicam , at times ; and shot in Barcelona , Catalonia . The motion picture was strangely directed by Enric Alberich in his second film , here creating a rare and disturbing atmosphere . It's a strong film but had little impact, and didn't achieve success .
